We’re all Going on a Summer Holiday

It’s International Archives Day and Twitter abounds with traveller’s tales. There are a fair few in the massive collection at Nottinghamshire Archives.

Let’s start with the annual day trip to the seaside where the Raleigh Cycle Company took its staff to Blackpool for the day. The year is 1956. The starting point is Nottingham Station. Is one of these happy people a relative of yours?
