Oral Histories of Toodyay
Share with us, our Collection and future generations, your memories of events and activities in the town you lived in or visited, Toodyay. We all have our own memories of certain events – even the most dramatic ones, like a bus crash or a flood. Sharing those memories from your perspective, gives current and future researchers an insight into the machinations of the people of Toodyay that is beyond what the newspaper of the day may have captured. Your story may include people who may have gone unrecognised in certain circumstances, or detail of an unknown side story . These stories build a broader picture, not just for historians and researchers, but for the wider community and those interested in preserving Toodyay’s history and culture. Your memories are valued!
