Old Document (Land League 1910 Bazaar)


Thanks to Michael Mullaney for kindly scanning the booklet and allowing us to share it:

This is a fabulous piece of Haslingden local history contained within the following pages and the bazaar came about by the Club needing to raise enough funds to purchase their new Club which was and is in George Street.

The programme shows photos of the various Committees formed for the purpose of carrying out various task to raise funds. Some of these names and their families are still strongly represented throughout our town and the document is a great source of local family history and interest. 

Obviously because of the age of the document most of the business represented within the adverts are no longer trading, yet their legacies thankfully live on in history.

Highly recommended for a really good read.....
