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 30th August in years gone by.

In 1797 Mary Shelley was born.

In 1860 Britain’s first tramway opened in Birckenhead.

In 1901 Herbert Cecil Booth patented the vacuum cleaner.

In 2016 a shopping trip to Leicester before going back to work.

Remembering the

original thinkers who

have touched all our lives.
