You've been asking questions and sharing your memories. So far you've shown us group photos of employees at Steward & Patteson's Brewery, street parties on Hughenden Road in the 1980s and told tales of the Toc H postbox outside the old Library. Together we are discovering forgotten Norwich.

If you are yet to join, don't hesitate to become part of a growing community that wants to see your photographs. From class pictures taken in the 90s, your grandparents hard at work in the Rowntree Mackintosh factory in the 70s and those candid snaps of your best mates (and their hairstyles) in Anglia Pool Club in the 80s,

Norwich Remembers has seen old school friends reconnect, past work colleagues catch up and neighbours reunite. There is no better time to get involved than right now.

Norwich Remembers will continue to delve deep into the Evening News archives to discover and share with you the history of a fine city with a new post every single day so why not join us on Facebook.

And don't forget about our 12-page heritage supplement, 'Norwich through the Decades', which can be found in the Evening News every Tuesday. You could even see your memories immortalised in print.
