Our Place: Erskineville, Alexandria & Beaconsfield

Our Place - Erskineville - Maureen Oliver

Maureen Oliver is Terry Murphy's sister and has also lived in Erskineville all her life. She recalls family life and has a much rosier picture of life in Erskineville than that depicted by her brother.

Caveat: This video was shot on a Sony Hi 8 video recorder. It was not until 2010 that we could get the analogue tapes digitised. Despite careful storage in the intervening period there has been some deterioration in quality. While we have retained the original .mov files from the original digitization in the SRA Archive, by necessity uploaded here are .mp4 files. The video is raw and unedited, a primary source document recording the occassion.
