Have you ever thought about researching the history of local sport and leisure? At Barrow Archives and Local Studies Centre you will find a wealth of sources relating to the growth and development of sporting activities from Victorian times including football, rugby, cricket and athletics. In our local studies library we have a variety of publications which chart the history of Barrow AFC and Rugby League as well as numerous archive collections that contain team photographs and match programmes. Why not have a look through a photograph album belonging to the ‘The Old Barrovians’ Association’.
This amazing source comprises photographs of prefects, sports teams, the choir and other recreational activities, 1944-1968. Each individual person in the photographs has been named. This might be a useful starting point for planning a long overdue reunion!
