Hairy Archives: Mayors of Bury

Continuing with our celebrations for ‘Explore Archive Week’ we have taken the challenge to choose something hair-related from our collections. Bring on the marvellous moustachioed mayors of Bury! These hirsute gentleman are also helping us to spread awareness of the admirable work carried out by the Movember Foundation, a charity organisation which aims to tackle issues surrounding men’s health.
