Re­liv­ing the past

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.

Canals and work­ers’ homes dom­i­nate the pic­tures his week, with Bosley locks and Mac­cles­field Canal at High Lane both fea­tur­ing.

Cam­eras also cap­tured 18th cen­tury quar­ry­men’s cot­tages built above the canal and the three-storey weavers’ houses, which used to be on Union Street.

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?’
