Bury The Way We Were

£13.50

With cine film, old photographs and reports from the archives of the Bury Times, Bury The Way Were presents a fascinating look back at life in bygone Bury.

In a feature on Bury at war, it remembers the sacrifice of the Bury Bantams in the First World War; in World War 2, it relives the V1 rocket attack on Tottington and reveals how an Italian prisoner of war became a local hero.

This entertaining journey through time is produced by Britain On Film exclusively for the Bury Times. It is narrated by Roger Vernon and the running time is approximately 50 minutes.

Take a trip back in time to the Bury of yesteryear with a new DVD.
With cine film, old photographs and reports from the archives of the Bury Times, Bury The Way Were presents a fascinating look back at life in bygone Bury. It recalls many of the changes that have taken place in the town’s recent history, including, the coming of the railway; the opening of the Drill Hall; and the construction of the Town Hall. In a feature on Bury at war, it remembers the sacrifice of the Bury Bantams in the First World War; in World War 2, it relives the V1 rocket attack on Tottington and reveals how an Italian prisoner of war became a local hero.

Among the many views of life in old Bury, we see crowds on the streets for the visit of George VI in 1938; the enthusiastic reception of a recently crowned Queen Elizabeth in 1954; and Saturday afternoons at Gigg Lane watching the Shakers in the 1930s. Last but not least, we see Bury in the late 1950s, just before the new shopping centre and the ring road transformed the town. Within a few years, old streets like Agur Street and Garden Street would be swept away, the Derby Hotel would be consigned to history, and Market Place and Union Square would be changed forever. But they’re not completely forgotten. Thanks to surviving archive film we can revisit the past and enjoy nostalgic scenes that will bring memories flooding back for those who remember the Bury of old.

This entertaining journey through time is produced by Britain On Film exclusively for the Bury Times. It is narrated by Roger Vernon and the running time is approximately 50 minutes.
