As part of our Archival holdings here at UEL, we do currently hold Eastside’s East London People’s Archive oral history collection. This oral history collection preserves the oral history recordings of the various projects “conducted by Eastside Community Heritage document the lives of ‘ordinary’ people in East London. Topics include World War Two, women’s history, markets, boxing, ethnic groups in East London, food and parks.” (Reference: Eastside Community Heritage). Please contact the UEL Archives on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on how to access these materials.
