An important part of our research project is to collect memories and private photographs of the transition of Salford between 1950 and 1975.
One of our colleagues at the University of Salford – Diane Lingard – grew up in Salford. She shared photos from her family album. The one above shows her older brother, grandmother and aunt standing at a street waiting for a parade. She is not sure where the photos were taken but the church in the background could probably be identified.
We are looking for such photographs and other mementos of Salford and would like to use them in an exhibition at the Salford Museum and Art Gallery in 2024. If you would like to share them with us and if you happy that we would use them for this blog and/or the exhibition, please contact us: email@example.com
