Oral History Interviews – Peta Smyth and Kate Thurlow

The oral history interviews are gathering pace!…Emma Slocombe, curator at the National Trust, at Knole and a member of the Advisory Board for the Antique Dealers project very kindly helped out with an interview for the project last week.  Emma interviewed the dealers Peta Smyth and Kate Thurlow about their memories of the trade.  Both Peta and Kate started their antique dealing careers in Portobello Road (just like Kathleen Skin, one of our other interviewees!), before moving through various shops in Kensington Church Street, Kings Road and Pimlico, in London. Emma’s interview with Peta and Kate will be apart of the growing archive of dealer memories and will be available via the project website over the coming months.
