A great picture of the slide on the park in the early 1970s. In the background is a very detailed picture of the back of the shops and the garages we used to play on.




A Whit Walk in the early 1970s on Kersal Way. On the left you can see Milton House and on the right Spencer, Shakespeare and Shelley. Roll your mouse over the image for the same spot 40 or so years later on the 14th July 2013.
