Although to date we have released numerous stories and blog posts on our website, we are always looking for additional information to further enhance our understanding of a person, event or theme.
African Students in Filey 1950s/60s
Last week we received several lists (see gallery of images below) with the names of African students who visited Filey in the 1950s and 1960s. This greatly enhances our understanding of the collection of photographs which featured in our seventh picture blog entitled Sudanese Officials in Filey c.1960. Watch out for a more detailed story of their time in the region towards the end of the year.
With thanks to Mike Kain and Brian Mulrine, archive supervisor at the Crimlisk Fisher Archive.
