MAKE HISTORY with the and Beverley Reference Library
For the next 6 weeks, the BBC and the library are asking people from the area to bring in old photographs and documents of Beverley's high streets, shops and businesses.
Whether its from the 70’s or 1870's, we will scan it, credit it, and place it on our interactive display for all library users to see, along with our selection of local studies books to foster a new generation of local historians. The material submitted will eventually be sent to the Archives and Local Studies service for consideration.
It forms part of the broadcasters 'Turn Back Time' programme, which sees modern day shopkeepers transported through time to the birth of the high street, before looking at how it has developed. For more info, visit:
Reference staff will also show people how to upload their images to the BBC’s Flickr group online.
If any of your members would like to submit material , they should feel free to visit us at the reference library. For further information, or to post submissions, please contact:
