Battery booklet coming in November

Many of us met Lisa Wilson and Annie McEwen this summer as they took photographs and interviewed us about Outer Battery history and memories.  They have been editing the material and laying out design for a printed booklet and audio CD, tentatively titled "Out to the Battery".  It should be printed in 3 weeks, so there can be a proper launch for it before end of November.  There will be enough printed so that every resident can have a copy.
As well, the HereSay project ( has agreed to place 8-10 signs along Outer Battery Road, prompting walkers to use their cellphones to listen to some Outer Battery voices.  For this, Annie has made a selection from  the various stories for which people gave their permission.
Check out their fieldwork blog on the SUMMER PROJECT tab above.
