Halifax Blog

Halifaxpeople.com are trying to preserve the history of our Town in the form of a collection of stories, pictures and any other memorabilia associated with our area and you can all help. 

Many photos etc get lost or even thrown away over time. So, we would like each and every one of you to search not only your own lofts, cellars and any other places you might have stored possessions but also help friends, relatives and best of all, any elderly neighbours that might be able to add to our collection.

All we need to do is photograph any pieces and you can keep any originals.

Please contact either :-    by E-mail -
