As part of their 70th Anniversary celebrations Lancashire Life Magazine let the public select 70 Objects from museums across the region that they felt represented Lancashire’s history.

Voters in Warrington selected “Eyres’ Weekly Journal”, one of Lancashire’s first newspapers. Eyres, Journal was produced by Eyres Press in Warrington and is one of many local periodicals held in the town’s archive.

This talk, with accompanying slideshow, will look at the often odd and sometimes comical content of Warrington’s historical magazines and papers.
