Town Hall Square, Rochdale, Lancashire
Town Hall Square, Rochdale, Lancashire
It's 1951 and there are many mill chimneys to be seen, casting a pall of smoke over the town. But very few motor cars! A Ribble bus, destined for Blackburn, stands outside the Central Hotel, while a Rochdale Corporation double-decker, probably bound for Greave Estate, just peeps in behind.
