Using our Burley archive material including press reports and photos from 1914-18, and pages from a scrap book kept by a lady in Burley during that time, the exhibition gives some indication of how Burley reacted to the war.
The Scrapbook is also available to be seen in the library when the archives are open, Tuesday and Friday afternoons, 2.30 to 4.30 p.m.
