Albany Voiceprints

A Voiceprint is an engaging way to bring an oral history story to life.
Experience Historical Albany through this unique collection of Voiceprints.
These stories feature local people sharing their experiences of living within the Albany community.
A Voiceprint relies primarily on a strong oral narrative sympathetically and subtly supported by historical imagery (both photos and video) and music to become a self-sustained story.

Howard Hartman Voiceprint - Albany Town Baths

Howard Hartman Voiceprint - Albany Town Baths

Howard describes how the Town Baths were run by a Greek ex-pearl diver and how he would entertain the public with his underwater antics.

This Voiceprint was produced by local Albany oral history enthusiast Kim Lofts with assistance from historian, Malcolm Trail. Music was composed and performed by Rod Vervest and recorded locally.
