What was Bromley like during the War Years?

Old Newspapers are a wonderful source of information. I have been working with the Bromley and District Times during World War 1 and its aftermath collecting and listing the names of military personnel who have featured in it for my Military Ancestors project.

Through this research I have also gathered fascinating stories, articles and adverts from the time.  These I can now bring to you through my website Bromley Historical Newspapers – stories written about the people of the time, by the people of the time.

I hope you enjoy reading them too.
