Some history of Derby

More information on Derby to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Derby from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for detailed information on Derby. I have placed a few old newspaper articles, along with a few photographs.
