Moving Picture & Oral History Collection

Moving Picture & Oral History

Overview

In collaboraton with Provincetown Community Television (PTV), existing home movies and oral histories are transformed by the latest technology and made available via the internet for everyone's enjoyment. Gathered from the community, this collection reveals just how much Provincetown has changed, and just how much it has remained the same. The Provincetown History Project and PTV call out to the community to send us your home movies for evaluation and possible inclusion in this collection, thereby protecting the material for generations to come. Archives vary in length, so be patient as some may take a minute to fully load, but are well worth the wait.
