About the Souvenir Programme Map

From the Motor Show brochures to Manchester University’s Rag magazine, newsreel cameramen would pick up souvenir programmes on assignments to provide contextual information for the editorial department.

A selection over 120 brochures, leaflets and programmes can be browsed by location and subject, providing a fascinating snapshot of how Britain marked the events that made the news in the 1940s and 1950s.

The full spectrum is here from Venetian fetes in Hythe to the National Town Criers Competition in Hastings together with highlights from the sporting calendar: the Boat race, the National, Wimbledon and the FA Cup.
