One Hundred Years of Service 1880-1980

A soft covered booklet with a picture of a member of the Salvation Army standing outside the Salvation Army headquarters located in Northampton. On the wall of the building, behind the member who is holding the bottom right hand corner of the organisations flag, the badge of the Salvation Army can be clearly seen. The words 'One hundred years of service' are printed in red lettering below this picture.

The title page of the booklet has a futher black and white picture which shows the headquarters building in the foreground with the Northampton skyline behind it. Placed in the centre of the page the words 'One hundred years of service 1880-1980' are printed above the picture and 'The story of the Northampton General Corps of The Salvation Army' are printed below the picture.

Details of the Salvations Army's early days in the town, which included riots and protests against the organisation, through to the successful launch of a new group for young boys are included in the booklet. Also included are:

• a roll of officers 1909-1979

• the timetable of activities on a typical Sunday

• extracts from a selection of letters sent to the Corps

• some thoughts about the organisation's future

• several more black and white photographs, including a view of Northampton's Market Square from c.1900
