You can delve into the your district’s rich history in this week’s Falkirk Herald.

Our free 12-page nostalgia supplement features dozens of pictures from years gone by, with the 1960s and ’70s firmly in the spotlight this time around.

Do you remember when soon-to-be Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher visited with husband Denis?

Or when an elephant from a visting circus enjoyed a pint in a local pub?

Maybe you were even one of those who queued up at a filling station in Grangemouth to top your tank up with some of the first petrol made from North Sea oil.

In addition to these pictures and many more, we’ve got fascinating articles on the history of Larbert House, the district’s parks and the famous Roxy Theatre.

It’s a supplement not to be missed.
