Abstract / Description

This article reflects on a community oral history project, ‘The Lost Trades of Islington’. The project was led and coordinated by Age UK Islington in partnership with Islington Local History Centre and London Metropolitan University. The project aimed to promote wellbeing, social interaction and learning, through recalling work and life in the London Borough of Islington from the mid twentieth century. The article is concerned with how the project framed the narratives of those interviewed and how the narratives reimagined Islington. It examines the significance of loss and place in the project.
