Step back in time to a by­gone era...

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’re tak­ing you on a tour of street scenes from by­gone years.

The 108 Steps, a well-known Mac­cles­field land­mark and im­me­di­ately recog­nis­able, started life as a func­tional stair­way from Wa­ter’s Green to St Michael’s Church.

A row of shops at Park Green makes for a quintessen­tially 1950s im­age and here also is nearby Par­son­age House – long be­fore it be­came a Wether­spoon’s!

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.

If you have ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion on the pic­tures fea­tured to­day, please con­tact staff at the Cheshire Im­age Bank by vis­it­ing www. cheshireim­age­bank.org. uk and click­ing on ‘Can you help?’

You can get in touch with us by email­ing mac­cles­field­ex­press@ men­media.co.uk.
