Farnborough Gallery - Postcard messages from the past



The history of Farnborough is not just based around buildings and locations, but also the people and events that have taken place. And one thing we all remember is adverse weather conditions, whether it's wind, rain, snow or a heatwave. The images in this gallery remind us of some of the events that Farnborough has played host to over the years.

In this unique gallery you can get an insight into the lives of people who were either living in, passing through, or had some connection with Farnborough. Compared to today, postcards seemed to have been used in the same way as we use SMS text messaging today to send short messages to family, friends and loved ones. Equally, if you have a family history linked with Farnborough why not check out the 1891 census returns for the town available on Historic Farnborough too?

Whatever the year, whether its 1900 or 2000, if you have photos or memories of events that have taken place in the town why not send them to us so everyone can remember them.
