Re: Alma Inn Baxenden

With a county library membership card, it is possible to access the Blackburn newspapers before the arrival of any Accrington ones. You can search for keywords such as 'Alma', but to get info on all of our poubs and clubs, it will be fruitful to search for the word 'Brewster Sessions'. The Accrington ones were held separately from the Church & Ossie ones.
The trade directories held in the library are a fantastic source of information., as are the early maps.
