A leisurely look at by­gone days

Macclesfield Express - - NOSTALGIA -

OUR nos­tal­gia col­umn brings you fas­ci­nat­ing pic­tures taken in Mac­cles­field in days gone by OUR new-look nos­tal­gia pic­ture spread now brings you a wide se­lec­tion of old pho­to­graphs each week.

This week we have some pic­tures re­lat­ing to leisure time ac­tiv­i­ties.

There are two pic­tures of the town’s his­toric cen­tral gar­dens at Sparrow Park which is cur­rently un­der­go­ing some restora­tion.

There are fam­i­lies head­ing to­ward Mac­cles­field train sta­tion, pos­si­bly on their summer hol­i­days in the 1890s.

An­other pic­ture shows ban­ners in Hurds­field cel­e­brat­ing the open­ing of Vic­to­ria Park. We have teamed up with Mac­cles­field Li­brary and Cheshire Ar­chives and Lo­cal Stud­ies to share old pho­to­graphs from the ar­chives and will be fea­tur­ing sev­eral dif­fer­ent im­ages each week.

Ex­plore old books, maps and news­pa­pers at Mac­cles­field Li­brary, Jor­dan­gate, SK10 1EE or visit ar­chives.cheshire.gov. uk. We would love to hear your mem­o­ries re­lat­ing to any of the pic­tures we share over our pages.
