As part of the Memory Blitz project the Building Exploratory worked with a year five class from Northwold School. To give them an opportunity to understand how the war affected Hackney and the lives of people who lived here, the Building Exploratory arranged for the class to interview the older people about their memories. Listening to these memories helped the children to imagine what life in wartime Hackney was like. They wrote their thoughts and feelings about it on parcel tags which they attached to photographs of themselves surrounded by a bomb damaged street.
