The City of Cockburn Oral History Project (1995)

The City of Cockburn commissioned a series of interviews in 1995 to capture the stories of long-term residents with a strong historical connection to the Cockburn district. These interviewees were born in Cockburn and spent most of their lives living, working, and raising families in the area. The interviews were conducted by John Price for Life Stories on Tape in late 1995.
