Marlborough Express Photo Collection Jan 1960 -- March 1960 : From the Archives of Marlborough Heritage Trust
The New Year was welcomed in traditional fashion in Market Place with a gathering of about 300-400 people and an over-worked Marlborough Pipe Band.

A few motor horns, a stroke or two on the Blenheim Volunteer Fire Brigade's bell and "Auld Lang Syne" marked the midnight hour.

The celebration followed a busy but orderly late shopping night. This photo was taken in Market Place at midnight.
