PHOTOGRAPHS: Help to record past

Following my retirement from a life of journalism I have interested myself in the history of Blyth, the town in which I was born.

While there is a valuable collection of photos of the town’s past already on computers through the efforts of historians Bob Balmer, Gordon Smith and the Blyth History Society, it is suspected that many more find their way into refuse bins on the death of elderly residents.

I am therefore making this appeal to anyone who may have access to such photographs to contact me to enable me to put them on computer for posterity. My telephone number is 01670 352825.
