Macclesfield Express - - BOSLEY TRAGEDY -

AN am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­pher is try­ing to trace the iden­tity of two men who he cap­tured at ran­dom in the Sev­en­ties.

Steven Wil­liamson took the snaps in Mac­cles­field up to 45 years ago.

The two mid­dle-aged men ap­pear to stood out­side a bike shop. He found them re­cently while look­ing through his col­lec­tion. Steven, from Tim­per­ley, said: “I used to have a cam­era with me all the time and would take pic­tures of any­thing I saw, peo­ple, ob­jects, scenery. I was re­ally inspired by the pho­tog­ra­pher Henri Cartier-Bres­son who was fa­mous for his can­did black and white pic­tures.”

Steven doesn’t know where the photo was taken or what year.

He added: “It’s a long time ago. I don’t even re­mem­ber what I was do­ing in Mac­cles­field that day, although I was prob­a­bly work­ing.

“I sup­pose those two gents would have caught my eye for some rea­son.

“They might not still be with us judg­ing by their ages, and the time I took them. But I sup­pose it might be nice for their rel­a­tives to see them again.”
