How to find the memories on the website
All the jobs are added as individual posts to the Home Page. A selection of memories are arranged by theme and can be found under the Link button First Jobs in the navigation panel above. Apart from looking through this selection there are a variety of ways to look at all the memories on the site.
Go to the Home page and scroll down through the posts as they are added to the website. At the bottom of Home page there is a button to click on to load more posts. There are over 180 posts on the site so this is a systematic but quite a time-consuming way of searching the site.
Another way to search the site is looking through categories on the right hand side of the Home page. The categories allocated to the memories are a) the decade in which people started work and b) what type of work it was.
Each tag is actually a hyperlink. For example if you click on the tag for Edinburgh and you will then see all the memories which include or are based in Edinburgh.
Isabella‘s memory of working as a tailor in 1930s
Nan’s memory of working in a tuberculosis ward in 1940s
Ernest‘s memory of training at Heriott Watt in the 1950s and then becoming a rocket scientist
Ron‘s memory of being taken from Aberlour Orphanage to work for the BBC in 1960s
Finally the website can be searched by when the memory was added. There is a list of Recent Posts. There is also a calendar. The highlighted dates are when memories were added to the site. There is also an archive list sorted by months of the year.
