Streets and their Stories

Streets and their Stories is a local history project led by Lincs Inspire Libraries, Arts Development and North East Lincolnshire Archives.

The project calls on local people to share their memories of the area, bring along their photographs and learn more about North East Lincolnshire’s past.

Local people have the opportunity to browse a whole range of local history materials including maps, photographs and documents.

Project Media

Browse resources and listen to some of the shared memories from the reminiscence roadshows that have been recorded for posterity.

Digital Collection Website

A new website brings the streets and stories of North East Lincolnshire directly to you at home.

Explore a huge selection of Lincs Inspire Libraries local history photograph collection online, covering the whole of historic Lincolnshire from the earliest days of photography up to the modern day.

Browse the images by searching a range of albums from ‘Trawlers’, ‘Schools’, ‘Docks’, ‘Pubs and Hotels’ and ‘People’.

Buy prints

Order prints of your favourite images directly from the site, ranging from postcard size to large framed canvases.


Streets and their Stories has been made possible thanks to a grant of just under £40,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
