In this HeritageTalk, historian and author Megan Hutching will discuss changes past and present of Glen Innes and Panmure.

In 1990 a series of oral history interviews were recorded with residents of Glen Innes and Panmure, capturing stories of the area as a place of change after the Second World War. Using these interviews Megan Hutching will talk about the mid-twentieth century history of the area and compare that period of change with the changes the area is currently experiencing.
