Memory BoxesDidsbury memory box

When lockdown hit in March 2020 we started to publish Memory Boxes weekly on the Archives+ blog. In each Memory Box you’ll find local images and sound archive clips about a specific area of Manchester or theme. You can go for a walk down memory lane in:

Looking Back

MA students Teresa Macnab and Olivia Spencer have produced two videos designed for those living with dementia. They use newly-digitised sound archives, photographs and BBC sound effects to share memories of holidays in Blackpool and sporting memories. Find out more about the project at Olivia and Teresa’s blog post.

Sporting Memories

You can listen to a variety of sporting sound archive clips from swimming to wrestling to football at the Sporting Memories Replay website.
