Welcome to Local Historians Blog
I moved to Bridlington in 2002 with absolutely no knowledge of the town. A chance meeting with a member of staff of Bridlington Central Library sparked my interest in family history. I began to look into my family's history and got somehow interested in Bridlington's past.
I now have a reasonable and diverse knowledge of various aspects of the towns past. Everything from the Bempton Climmers to the RAF boats which once graced the harbour. In addition I have a good collction of local postcards of which I would one day love to publish a book. Will be asking for help with varied things over the next few months.
Does anyone know what happened to the mirror ball which was in the Spa ballroom before it was renovated? It just seems to have disappeared.
I have been helping one of the Anfield family of Bridlington with her family history and it got me thinking, somone, somewhere must have photos of their buses. We are talking as early as the the 1940's but if not photos memories of them, indeed any of the local bus companies.
From what I here Jack Anfield was well known around town and it is his daughter I am helping.
Please get in touch if you have any information.
I am attempting to add to my collection of interesting photographs of Bridlington. I find it really interesting to see how things have changed over the years in the town. do you have any photographs that I could, perhaps, borrow, copy and then return them to you. anything will be well looked after.
Also of interest are any wartime memories of the local area. A group of like minded people are hoping to compile a book of memeories of Bridlington in WW2. We want to do oral history recordings of people's memories of the era.
