FRANK WALSH HOUSE

Early in 1999, CWN visited Frank Walsh House in Coventry.  Frank Walsh House is a Community Centre for older people.   The House primarily attracts Asian elders.  Recordings were made during a Asian women's social event.  Women talked of their arrival in Coventry, their families, work, the weather and the lack of suitable food.

The names of the individual women are being checked and will soon be added to the clips.

Some of the clips are interspersed with Gujariti and translations. 

Clip One (1.57mins)
East Africa to Coventry

Clip Two (1.43mins)
Coventry rather than London - Husband works in local mine

Clip Three (1.53mins)
Gujariti / English - Wife of a Priest

Clip Four (1.12mins)
The Cold - Poor Housing

Clip Five (2.09mins)
Kenya - Snow - Children

Clip Six (2.07mins)
