A book of photographs of Berwick and the district during the 1950s has recently been published by The Friends and the Record Office, under the title THE FIFTIES IN FOCUS. It features 58 pictures from the Photocentre Collection, which was purchased by the Record Office with assistance from The Friends after the Photocentre in Bridge Street closed in 2012. The photographs in the book include some now vanished buildings and businesses, public occasions and ceremonies, trades and employment, sports and pastimes, and some unusual events and curiosities.
The book is now available from Berwick Record Office during its normal hours, and it costs £7.99. Copies can be posted for an additional charge of £1.50 (UK). Cheques payable to “FBDMA”. It is also on sale at Grieve’s, stationers in Berwick.
