In 2009, we interviewed four individuals about their experiences as children in East Cambridge. We wanted to document their experiences and use the opportunity of looking back at one’s childhood to draw out memories of Cambridge in a different time and reflect on how the city has changed.

The people selected were individuals who had grown up, at least partially, in East Cambridge. The questions were written, interviews conducted, and tapes transcribed by Michelle Freitas as a part of an internship with the Cambridge Historical Society.
