Down mem­ory lane

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.

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.

This week there are pic­tures from the early 20th cen­tury of chil­dren near West Park’s bowl­ing green, the Cat Fid­dle Inn and Bolling­ton War Memo­rial. Read­ers can spot the dif­fer­ences be­tween the lo­ca­tions to­day.

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.
