The Post War History of Leicester 1945-1962

This exhibition looks at various aspects of the post-war history of Leicester. It is based on the project 'An Oral History of Post-War Leicester 1945-1962', which was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and conducted by the East Midlands Oral History Archive (EMOHA) and a team of volunteers.

This website was created by the East Midlands Oral History Archive with help from volunteers.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the project. Thanks also to Leicester City Council and the Leicester Mercury for permission to use their photographs, and to the Record Office for Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland for permission to use photos and for their help in locating material.
