Australia, Nottingham, Norfolk and Wimbledon, were just four of the faraway places from where some of today’s visitors had travelled. Others who still live in the Laindon area had made a considerably shorter journey to Laindon Library, where about 23 people gathered for Memory Day.
Reunions of family, previous school friends and neighbours are always a joy and several took place involving plenty of chat, catching up and storytelling. As usual the photographs on the display boards and the collection of postcards received lots of attention. A couple of visitors brought various photographs and other items of interest with them to be scanned.
Another very successful occasion was enjoyed, showing just how popular the Archive’s Memory Days have become. Here’s looking forward to the next one on 28th June.
