This week Accrington Carnival Queen contestants and locals enjoying nights out on the town feature in our Time-trip column.
Each week we will publish a set of pictures taken by our photographers which appeared in the paper in the 2000s.
The pictures appear first on our website and are then reprinted in the paper.
This week our pictures show revellers at Warner’s Bar and The Bridge Inn in Accrington town centre.
There is also a shot of four hopefuls vying to be named Accrington’s Carnival Queen.
The photographs were all taken in the early 2000s.
If you have any pictures you would like us to feature in the column, please send them into us at email@example.com or via the Accrington Observer Facebook page.
