Looking back

editorial image

Looking back at times gone by in Rugby.

THIS picture shows 1955 Rugby and District Badminton league finals at ‘The Firs’ old sports place, which had a badminton court where Rugby’s gyratory system is now. The picture was submitted by Helen Todd, who moved to Worthing 30 years ago but still reads the Advertiser. Back row: Cedric Flint, Gill/Jill Carvell, two unknowns, Wynn Strickland. Front Row: Molly Fell, Helen Todd, Ted Carter, Mrs Carter, Rugby’s mayor and mayoress, Peter Grave, Gordon Batchelor, Doris Batchelor, three unknown.

The second picture, from our archives, shows queues for taxis stretching down North Street during the bus strike of December 1970.
