The images and personal recollections in Lewisham Voices have been gathered from individuals and groups who took part in the project. They were compiled from the family albums and stories of people who live, work or are involved in community activities in the borough. Together they give a fascinating insight into some of the memories and experiences, happy and sad, that help to make Lewisham what it is today.
Lewisham Voices is a collaboration between the Museum of London and the Library and Information Service of the London Borough of Lewisham. Lewisham’s Voices is just one part of a three-year project, London’s Voices, which aims to extend access to the oral history collection of the Museum of London. London’s Voices is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. To find out more about the project and other exciting developments planned, visit the London’s Voices home page at The Museum of London.
