It was a year which marked the end of the Cold War and the Gulf War and featured the deaths of both Robert Maxwell and Freddie Mercury.
The year 1991 also saw Swaffham school children bury a time capsule to be opened in 25 years.
On Saturday the capsule was opened at Swaffham Junior Academy's summer fair.
Former pupils and staff of the then South Greenhoe Middle School, who were at the burial, attended along with pupils, parents and teachers of Swaffham Junior Academy.
They were able to read their answers they wrote as children to questions on their hopes and ambitions for the future.
