  • Scope and Content
    The first issue of Bedfordshire on Sunday (BOS), then called Bedford On Sunday, appeared on 6 March 1977. Back issues are held at Z287 but can in any case be consulted by ordering the paper by title and date. When BOS developed its local editions e.g Mid-Beds edition,in the 1980s and 1990s, the RO only kept the North-Beds version. [Z287 has now been deleted from the RO holdings - 2015]. There are three series of photographs, male portraits (X881/4), female portraits (X881/5), and subjects and places (X881/6-7). These comprise a mixture of colour and black and white photographs, with occasional printed brochures, from a variety of sources.
