Houses of old and an air­craft pi­o­neer

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.

An early avi­a­tor and im­ages from Ch­ester Road make up this week’s se­lec­tion.

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.

Trees now mask it and the wall is lower, but it is still recog­nis­ably St Al­ban’s RC Church, on Ch­ester Road, which was de­signed by Au­gus­tus Pu­gin in 1839. Here it is pic­tured in the 1890s
