The Keirby Triangle

Joan Barber gave us an illustrated lecture - a lighthearted look at the “Keirby Triangle area” of Burnley from Victorian times using photos from the library archives. Members enjoyed remembering how Burnley looked in earlier times  and saw how it had changed through the years.  Rita Walsh amused us with her Keirby Hotel memories, also telling us  how it had changed through the years,from the heady days when it began as a five star hotel to rival any in the country, to today when it has become university student accommodation .
