Back to the Future Day

Take a look at Shakespeare's town decades ago!

Wednesday 21st October was ‘Back to the Future Day’ and our reading room team marked the occasion by looking at the dates that feature in the films to see what life was like in Stratford-upon-Avon in these eras. If you took a DeLorean back to 2nd September 1885 (BTTF III),  12th November 1955 (BTTF) or 26th October 1985 (BTTF II), what would you find?  We’ve found news articles and photos as close as possible to these dates without even leaving the Reading Room.
