Old Newspapers are a wonderful source of information. I have been working with the Bromley and District Times during World War 1 and its aftermath collecting and listing the names of military personnel who have featured in it for my Military Ancestors project.
Through this research I have also gathered fascinating stories, articles and adverts from the time. These I can now bring to you through my website Footsteps to the Past – stories written about the people of the time: by the people of the time.
I hope you enjoy reading them too.
