Local historian Babette Scougall grew up in the Kingston area.  She is concerned to record the memories of other early families from Canberra's early suburbs.

In 2004 she independently recorded interviews with others who grew up in the Kingston area.

Also included in this collection is a recording of a walk she took in 1999 with Val Emerton, Lyall Gillespie and David Muir around the Kingston Foreshore, concentrating on the area previously used as the Government Stores, the Government Printer, the Bus Depot and the Mechanics' Workshop. Supplementary information and photographs have also been supplied.
