Welcome

The stories of people and places are the result of a tangled web of interactions between people, places, and technologies. The living and writing of history is never a neat process.  It is a process of engagement with the chaos of life as it unfolds in the continuous present, and as technologies, landscapes, and human creations capture moments of that present.

I will be adding posts about the way some local places have changed over time, and about the ways in which changing technologies of communication have influenced people’s lives: the telegraph, the cinema, the printing press and more.
