Rochdale, The Golden Years
Following the successful formula of our previous ‘Memories’ books, we have produced a publication that takes the reader on a trip down memory lane. This is not a history book, rather a glimpse of what life was like in Rochdale during the most eventful period of our recent past.
In today’s ever changing hi-tech world, there is something rather comforting and reassuring about nostalgic memories from the past. Images of everyday occurrences show life in Rochdale as it was when we were younger and perhaps more carefree. Page after page of rare photographs, each carrying a well researched and informative caption, take local readers on a steam train ride through the mist of time.
We are extremely proud of our heritage in Rochdale and we should all invest a little time. These events from what we now refer to as the ‘Good Old Days’, will stir memories that may otherwise be forgotten.
We hope you, your family and friends are entertained and informed by this pictorial meander through the recent past of our great town.
