Buckley Farm Lane, Rochdale, Lancashire
At the time of this photograph, (1951), Buckley Farm Lane still presented a remarkably rural appearance, with large cobbles and absence of any footway. The old man, possibly on his way for his lunchtime 'pint', adds to the sense of an England that has now passed away.
Amazingly, well over 60 years after the photograph was taken, the identity of the senior citizen has emerged. He is Isaac John Tonks, and was on his way to meet his wife to help her carry her shopping home. I received this information from Mr. Tonks' greatgranddaughter.
