In America there is a movement called "If This House Could Talk" where the residents and businesses in area post hand written signs and graphics in front of their homes and businesses telling stories and offering information from the recent or not-so-recent past for passers-by to read.
Much of our local history is recorded as folklore or captured in photographs, both are vulnerable to the passage of time. How many photographs, family histories have been lost over the decades. Many works of local history are compiled by amateur historians. Local history tends to be less documented than other types of history.
