TitleNewscutting volumes
DescriptionThere are more than fifty volumes of newscuttings transferred from Barrow Town Hall, and recording council business, generally from around 18880s-1950s. It is not always apparent which of the Town Hall departments was responsible for their compilation: probably representatives of more than one department were involved.

A older Microsoft Works database, covering the more prominent stories in the volumes, was previously compiled by a group of volunteers. This is still available for use via staff in the searchroom. This sometimes helps to trace events where exact dates are unknown. At time of writing (July 2006) none of this information had been transferred onto any other database.
