The Cenotaph and Memorial Gardens, Rochdale, Lancashire
By comparison with my 1951 view, in this 1964 picture the memorial gardens have now reached maturity. The area behind has been tidied up a little, but one or two motor coaches are still parked there. The main buildings are still visible, but those cranes on the left are ominous: there was soon to be a radical rebuilding of this area which would see high-rise flats appear on the scene during the next few years.
