FOLLOWING the news that the North West Film Archive will be presenting a fascinating look at Furness on Film at the Coronation Hall in Ulverston on Thursday, the Evening Mail takes a look back at some of the other memorable events and places from times gone by.

Images dating back several decades paint a very different picture of life in Furness.

The snapshot of Schneider Square in Barrow in the 1950s epitomises a much simpler time, where the rare sight of a motor vehicle is eclipsed behind a swarm of cyclists.

There are two photos featuring groups of swimmers who seem to be enjoying themselves, one of Ulverston Canal and the other of Grange Baths in 1990. The outdoor swimming pool has sadly been derelict since 1993.

Another nod to sport sees competitors tough it out during the Holker Horse Trials in 1986 and are there any Morris dancers out there who recognise when this photo was taken outside Dalton Castle?

Another two photos in comparison, show the relative calm of Millom Market Square and Paxton Street in Barrow in the 1960s.

And going even further back, to Grange in the 1940s, the outfitter and tobacconist J Trenmouth is nearest to shot, ahead of the familiar name of Boots further down the high street.
