Streets that have faded into history
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.
