Eastside Community Heritage was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to undertake the Working Lives project in 2007. Eastside arranged over 40 reminiscence sessions, community projects and school workshops and collected over 260 interviews covering the themes of Food & Drink, Printing, Energy, Markets, Textiles, Engineering, Chemicals and Transport. Full copies of the interviews are archived in the East London People’s Archive established by Eastside Community Heritage in 1999.
