Pictures from the Past - week 8
Bringing our social media series to our website
Continuing our series of Pictures from the Past, today we're bringing you all the photographs from week 8.
This week's most liked photograph was the one of Northbrook Street in an age where, it was suggested!, people dressed particularly smartly to stroll down the high street.
What is your favourite photo from this week and what memories does it conjure up for you?
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.
