Harrington harbour area at it's industrial peak
Harrington harbour area today
This site is an archive of historical photographs of Harrington, now part of Workington in Cumbria (formerly Cumberland), in the north west of England, from the scrapbooks and photo collection of the late Stanley Jackson together with those of Geoff Johnstone. Their collections cover most areas of Harrington, as well as local events, football teams, school photos etc.
The site has many pages of old photographs grouped by geographical areas or topics and accessed by the index on the left of this page.
It must be difficult for people of younger generations to imagine what a bustling industrial community Harrington was and how much has disappeared almost without trace.
On some of the pages "before and after" photographs have been included, either to identify locations, or to contrast the changes that have taken place over the years.
