Memory Corner is a column that appears in the Shrewsbury Chronicle each week. It involves reproducing short extracts from old editions of the newspaper. There are seven sections – 225, 200, 150, 100, 40, 25 and 10 years ago. The extracts are either of historical significance (international, national or local), or may be unusual, amusing or quirky. Lack of space means that some items may have had to be shortened or summarised.
Columns are sometimes accompanied by an appropriate illustration (these were not part of the original article).
