The City of Manchester is very much associated with the NCTS, every excursion picking up there, usually outside Victoria Station. It was also the City where I studied for and gained a degree in Library and Information Studies, a consequence being that John has tasked me with the role of archivist!!

It is probable that 42 magazines were produced by the Society between 1969 and 1981. I have now been able to secure scanned copies of all but 21 from 1975 and 25 from 1976. Does anyone have either of these? Also, the back page is missing from the the copies of 17 and 20 that I have.
It is hoped to eventually add as many of the scanned magazines as possible to the website. Those already added are listed below. Click on the Magazine to see a pdf scan.
Magazine 17 (back page missing)
