In the late 1960s, Granada TV decided Coronation Street needed a new setting for shooting the outdoor scenes, and thus the famous cobbles were created. Pictured are Dennis Tanner, played by Philip Lowrie with his new bride Jenny Sutton (Mitzi Rogers). In the background are Annie Walker (Doris Speed), Ena Sharples (Violet Carson), Emily Nugent (Eileen Derbyshire), Valerie Barlow (Anne Reid), Ken Barlow (William Roache), Len Fairclough (Peter Adamson) and Elsie Tanner (Pat Phoenix).
