Season’s Greetings!

As another year comes to a close we hope that you have had as much pleasure from visiting the site as Laura and I have had from running it.  To be honest Laura does most of the work now but I like to think I still do my bit.

We are ever conscious of the contribution you lot out there make to the success of the site which has been to some extent recognised by the fact that we have recently been approached by the British Library who would like to include this site in a National Archive of worthy UK sites.  We are dead chuffed about it!

We’d like to offer our sincere thanks for all your kind words and good wishes and we’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our friends, old and new, a very happy Christmas and a safe and prosperous new year.

We will be taking a few days off now but please keep your contributions coming, we will be back on deck on Monday 4 January 2016

  1. Great News about the British Library, this is well deserved because the site generates so much interaction and dialogue as well as revealing lost and forgotten images.

    Best wishes



  2. Congratulations on being recognised by such an august body. Now, rest on your laurels for a few days as you celebrate Christmas and the New year festivities.


  3. Congratulations on the British Museum Invitation. It is absolutely invaluable to anyone try to do real history, local or otherwise.

    Wonder if it worth having a Picture Stockton Party at some point in 2016. What do the regulars think?


    • What a good idea Fred Starr, some kind of ‘get-together’ would be very nice and it would be lovely to put a face to the names we see on here.


  4. Thank you so much for such a good job. The memories that you bring back to us oldies are priceless. Keep up the good work and I wish you both a very merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New year.


  5. I was brought up in Stockton in the 40s and 50s and have many happy memories of the market on Saturday with my parents. Personally I preferred the High Street as it used to be, but the riverside now is amazing. Thank you for all the photos and to the people who provide them. There is one name I think I recognise, is it possible to get in touch with him?
