Southampton speaks

Southampton Speaks

Southampton Speaks Help with sound clips
 Sometimes the Manageress would go with her girls on board to do the laundry while the ship was at sea; I approached my mother and I never heard the end of it When I joined, the film stars were on every voyage; I have never been the same since I fell into the arms of Kirk Douglas one afternoon when the ship was rolling

Southampton Speaks brings to life Southampton in the early 20th century. Listen to sound clips from people who worked, played and lived near the port, and on the high seas. These clips come from the SouthamptonOral History Archive.
