Great memories of events, people and places from the past will be revived by the January edition of the Scunthorpe Telegraph’s ever-popular Nostalgia magazine, on sale from tomorrow (Friday) for just 75p.
With "yours truly" overseeing the content, it's no real surprise there's plenty of interest to Brigg area readers. Many will recognise the local farmer pictured on page one, for example.
Learn about happy days on a village farm’s potato production line and how sprouts beat the big freeze in the 1960s.
Recall how a Government minister travelled north to demolish one of Scunthorpe’s industrial landmarks.
Marvel at the sweet smell of success which came the way of a pipeline project in the Ancholme valley.
Relive the post-Falklands War era when North Lincolnshire families welcomed home their brave servicemen from the South Atlantic.
There’s a look back to a successful first year for Scunthorpe Leisure Centre and Nostalgia recalls the initial spadework getting under way on the Riddings housing estate.
The deep midwinter of 1947 is highlighted through previously unpublished pictures courtesy of former Brigg resident Sylvia Clark (once of the Brocklesby Ox, Bridge Street).
There’s a double dose of match action from the past for Scunthorpe United fans, featuring tussles with Bradford and Chesterfield, and there’s a look at a memorable year for steelworks inter-departmental cricketers.
The popular That Was The Year feature recalls major news events, sporting achievements and favourite records of 1946, when Britain was still enduring rationing.
January’s issue of Nostalgia includes a free four-page Telegraph Trains supplement in which Scunthorpe railway historian Bryan Longbone takes another dip into his wealth of fascinating archive material.
