Building Blocks of History 28th September

Things happen every day, big and small. Together they make our family history, our local history, our country’s history and sometimes they become part of global history.

All of these things happened on 28th September in years gone by.

In 1066 William the Conqueror invaded England.

In 1865 Elizabeth Garrett Anderson graduates as Britain’s first woman doctor.

In 1894 Marks and Spencer opened a Penny Bazaar in Manchester.

In 1974 it was my first day  at boarding school.

Brave new beginnings

Untold possibilities

Changing history.
