Vis­i­tors con­gre­gate at new park in the 1950s

Macclesfield Express - - LOOKING BACK -

OUR nos­tal­gia col­umn brings you fas­ci­nat­ing pic­tures taken in Macclesfield in days gone by.

We have teamed up with Macclesfield Li­brary and the Cheshire Im­age Bank to share more old pho­to­graphs from the ar­chives and once again will be fea­tur­ing a col­lec­tion of images each week.

Our main pic­ture shows vis­i­tors to a sunny Spar­row Park af­ter its com­ple­tion in the 1950s.

The smaller pic­ture is a view of shops on Wa­ters Green show­ing Step Hill be­fore the gar­dens and St Michael’s Parish Church at the top of Step Hill, in the 1950s.

All pho­to­graphs and many more come from the Cheshire Im­age Bank, www.cheshireim­age­bank.org.uk.

Ex­plore old books, maps and news­pa­pers at Macclesfield Li­brary, Jor­dan­gate, SK10 1EE, or visit www.cheshireeast. gov.uk/li­braries.

We would love to hear your mem­o­ries re­lat­ing to any of the pic­tures we share over our pages.
