Pictures from the Past - week 7

Continuing our series of Pictures from the Past, today we're bringing you all the photographs from week 7.

From refugees arriving in Newbury in 1939 to the Town Bookseller in Northbrook Street and Highclere Castle in the 50s, this week's eclectic mix of images had all of our readers reminiscing.

Throughout 2020 we will be posting a picture from our files every day on our Instagram and Facebook accounts.

We were so pleased with the response that we thought we would do a regular gallery on our website too - to ensure even more readers are able to enjoy them.

We hope you enjoy them and don't forget to check back every week to see the next batch of memory-making images, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see one every day.
