AnnotationBased at a day centre for Jewish people in a north London borough, the study explores some of the ways older people use to constitute their conception of time. It demonstrates that the life histories of members of the centre, coupled with their current social, economic and physical conditions, were a source for a series of incongruities and ambiguities in their perspectives on time.
