Video interviews with senior residents

Interesting and unique stories about life growing up on Lord Howe Island.

In 2012, with generous sponsorship by James and Leonie Furber, the Lord Howe Island museum engaged professional videographer Dick Collingridge to conduct a number of video interviews with senior Island residents.

These interviews captured many interesting and unique stories about life growing up and living on Lord Howe Island.

The time spanned many decades and saw changes such as transportation from ocean going ships, to flying boats then Qantas land aircraft.

These interviews form a valuable digital archive of the Island’s history. The committee decided to play some of these interviews on a regular basis in the auditorium. They have proven quite popular not only with visiting public, but also for members of the local community.

Free screenings are held each weekday in the mornings at the museum.
