A new book of photographs has just been published by the Friends and Berwick Record Office. “Snapshots of the Sixties” presents 58 photos drawn from the Photocentre Collection, recording life in and around Berwick in the 1960s. They illustrate the thriving employment at the Shipyard and at firms like Pringle’s, the visit of HMS Berwick and the departure of the KOSB from the Barracks, the fluctuating fortunes of Berwick Rangers and the beginning of Speedway. And many of the pictures show local people at work or at play, giving the opportunity for Berwickers of today to recognise members of their families and old acquaintances – or even themselves.
The book is now on sale at Berwick Record Office at £8.99. (Copies may be posted for an additional charge of £1.50. Cheques payable to “FBDMA”,)
It is also on sale at Grieve’s, stationers, Church Street, Berwick.
