This section could quite easily have been called “Down Memory Lane”.  Most of the stories, written by ordinary people, cover the time between the 1920s and 1960s.
There are also articles taken from the local papers reminiscing about Blackburn in the 18th and 19th century.
Each month you can also read news of what was happening in Blackburn and Darwen 100 years ago.
Please use the links above to navigate to the section you wish to discover more about.
