585 & 587 Broadway, Chadderton - 50 Years On
Fifty years on from an earlier photograph LinkExternal link the two houses exhibit many signs of the intervening years' cultural and societal changes. Double-glazed windows and porches have become standard and in white - a colour unthinkable in the coal-fired 1960s. Television aerials sprout from the chimneys in multiple, but some chimneys have clearly been capped or adapted to take a gas flue, with coal fires replaced by gas central heating. The gas supply pipe for 585 is visible near the front door. Alarms and security lights also feature, reflecting modern concerns.
