Royston Official Guide

We are really pleased to have received copies of the 1948 and 1960 Official Royston Guides from Alan Cecil at the Royston Past & Present Facebook group.

They have given us a lot of pleasure as we look at how our town has changed over the past 50 years.

As publishers we’ve also found it fascinating how the fonts, typography and advert styles have changed so much!

We’ve spotted a couple of businesses that are still in existence now, and many organisations too.

Royston is still as vibrant now as it was then!

Please let us know what you think:
