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.
Local history request
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.
April 26, 2012 - 3:20 PMI have quite a few pictures of family in Bridlington 40s to 60s but most have people in them. My grandfather was born there and was stationed in Cairo in ww2. Until he moved to Shropshire in the 60s. If they are any help
