Take a step back in time and relive the golden days of yesteryear.

Some things never change, of course: there are workmen hard at their labours, a group of happy day-trippers, and people helping their community.

There’s a moment of history, too, as youngsters travel on the last train between Penrith and Keswick.

All are among a selection of images from the News & Star archive, showing off the very best of the Eden Valley, its villages and – of course – the people who make them so very special.

Our selection of images is a snapshot of community life.

Can you spot yourself in any of the photos? Or do you have your own memory of days gone by to share? Get in touch by emailing letters.carlisle@cnmedia.co.uk or alternatively write to us at Memories, Newspaper House, Dalston Road, Carlisle,
