Alistair Thomson

  • Illuminates the creation and interpretation of the stories we make of our lives through letters, photographs, life writing and oral history A unique collaboration between a historian and four ordinary women who were extraordinary letters-writers, family photographers and memoirists Uses an extraordinarily rich archive of four women's life stories - including letters, photographs, life writing and oral history - to illuminate intimate aspects of everyday life and women's experience that are often lost to history
