Profile image for Lichfield Mercury

PAGES FROM THE PAST: The Mercury archives stretch back more than 100 years and for anyone interested in local history, each edition is a fascinating resource. News stories, pictures, announcements and adverts give a flavour of the period and our volumes are a record of how the city has evolved.

The extracts featured here are from the Mercury dated June 5, 1936.

They include a report of that year's Lichfield Bower and a Chasetown wedding and a picture of a man reading the Mercury in India, which is reminiscent of our 'Mad About the Mercury' competition.

More extracts from the Mercury archives will be published next week. They can be viewed at the public records office at Lichfield Library in The Friary.
