Tameside – Oral History Interviews

Tameside Archives and Local Studies’ Made in Greater Manchester collection consisted of a range of oral history interviews relating to the cotton industry. They concentrate particularly on social relationships in the workplace, gender issues, supervision and control, working conditions and routines, the relationship of the mills to the wider community and the politics of cotton communities.

These interviews were conducted in the 1970s and 1980s and were held on the original reel to reel tapes. MIGM provided the first opportunity for these interviews to be digitised and transcribed in order to make them more accessible.
