    A series of interviews with elderly people, in 1929. Some of the interviewees are 90 to 100 years old, so memories go back to the 1830s...........!

    One thing I found interesting is that these people talk just like today’s folks, unlike what we are used to hear in the old newsreels, and even movies, where the speakers went to great extents to adopt a “Special Newscast Accent And Speech”.
