New format. The FoPL have recently started a YouTube channel where all the fade in/out videos will eventually be saved to. The videos on this website and on our Facebook page will still be there but as a link. This has been done because YouTue is designed for videos and it is easier to upload to, easier to search for and will allow for a library of videos.

Les Banques

This month’s fade-in video is a bit of a cheat, I’m afraid. The area is the subject of an article in this month’s newsletter about a family who lived in Tower No 2 for over 50 years. Mrs Curtin moved out of the tower in April 1914 and it was demolished in 1958 to make room for the States flats. I have colourised the 1958 picture to give it a little more interest.

To read about the Curtin family, you will have to read the newsletter and you have to become a Friend of The Priaulx Library to get the newsletter – or you can read it at the Priaulx Library.
