This section is for 14 fat blue volumes, each with 12 monthly chapters, that were issued annually from 1926 – 1940. Each monthly chapter will be a separate [large] file to view and search.  In total some 11,500 pages of Reading’s Social History.

The key difference for archivists & historians is that these versions of the Gazettes should be searchable, which sadly the monthly versions loaded some time ago have not turned out to be. All this, if and when we can conquer the huge technical & financial challenges that this involves for a hobby site.

You can use the annual links below or on the right to navigate through the 14 years, then find each month.


I will load more below as and when I can, hopefully during the next few months.
