taken 50 years ago, near to Rochdale, Great Britain

Town Hall Square, Rochdale, Lancashire
Town Hall Square, Rochdale, Lancashire
The very small number of motor cars seen in this 1968 view is explained by the fact that this was taken quite early on a Sunday morning. Note the trees now growing in front of the 'Flying Horse'. The steep road leading up to the right is Nelson Street, and the large building on the left of this street is the Technical School. The small building right foreground with Tudor-effect gable is the town mortuary.
