Streets that have faded into his­tory

Macclesfield Express - - NOSTALGIA -

OUR nos­tal­gia col­umn brings you fas­ci­nat­ing pic­tures taken in Mac­cles­field in days gone by. 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.

In this week’s col­umn, we are bring­ing you a se­lec­tion of street scenes from years gone by.

As well as rows of now-de­mol­ished shops from the 1960s and 70s, an old cy­cle store and a li­brary, we have a clas­sic im­age of chil­dren play­ing in the street as a woman in the back­ground is hard at work clean­ing her doorstep.

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. 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.
