#ThrowbackThursday
Let's take another trip down Memory Lane....
We were given this screenshot by a Hopper Shopper which is from a Lincolnshire Standard newspaper front page from 1st April 1966. 
Some of you may remember certain things from this image. Firstly, a midnight fire at the Boston Assembly rooms causing 'tens of thousands' of pounds worth of damage. 
What is also interesting is some of the adverts! There is a small advert from us in the top right corner of the paper when the shop was still in Strait Bargate. But do you remember the other places?!
There's also a A.H.B Garages (located in Tawney Street) advert and also Keightleys of Boston and Skegness located in High Street.
A big piece of Boston history just on page 1!
