Archive of the month

The Archive of the Month feature raises awareness amongst students and staff about the variety of material that we hold. In particular, the old Bangor photographs appear to spark a lot of interest and debate on the University’s Facebook pages.

Every month, an item is selected to be showcased. The item is scanned and a short piece of text written about its history.

May 2017

Photograph taken outside a hire firm in Upper Bangor around the end of the 19th century. The company, advertising “Carriages: Large Brakes & Omnibuses” for hire, was located on College Road, near the junction with Holyhead Road. The Belle Vue public house can be seen on the right.

The people on the carriage are very smartly dressed – on their way back from the “Garth Ferry” perhaps?
