The main library in Grimsby Town Centre holds copies of all the old Saturday telegraphs Meza, I've been there a couple of times.

They are on what are called "Microfiche" files and  they have a special reader that you use.

What Les said. I'm currently researching a possible book on old Town games from the 40s/50s for a Trust related project and have found the library to be brilliant for the level of detail contained in the match reports.
On that subject in the New Year I hope to be in the position to interview Town fans who started watching in our first division days and/or up to the mid-fifties. ....the Shankley era etc.









I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

My Dad was watching in the fifties. He might be interested in chatting to you. Let me know when you're in a position to go ahead, and I'll ask him if he wants to help.
