Streets and their Stories
Adding the colour of memories to the black and white photographs
Streets and their Stories is a local history project led by Lincs Inspire Libraries, Arts Development and North East Lincolnshire Archives.

Local people have the opportunity to browse a whole range of local history materials including maps, photographs and documents. Some of the shared memories at the reminiscence roadshows are recorded to be preserved for posterity.
To date, a number of reminiscence roadshows and exhibitions using photographs from the Local History collection at Grimsby Library and North East Lincolnshire Archives have taken place, including:
Streets and their Stories has been made possible thanks to a grant of just under £40,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
