British oral histories document rural life in late 19th/early 20th cen

The British Library has posted a collection of 250 sound recordings made by oral historian George Ewart Evans, "between 1956 and 1977, many in Suffolk, with a smaller number in Wales, Ireland and Scotland. The recordings document rural life and agricultural work in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, folk beliefs about animals, medicine and witchcraft, folk and popular songs."

I'm pretty taken by interview with unidentified borstal inmate used in preparing the book 'Horse power and magic' (London, 1979).
