Photo Archive

Discover our amazing photo archive

There are over 6,000 photographic records on this site, produced by digitising glass plate and film negatives. As the negatives were taken over a 20 year period, the range is as fascinating as it is diverse.

If you are looking for something particular, you might want to look through our 21 categories from Schools to Work and Industry. If you are looking for something in more detail have a look at our Search Tips Section to help you get the most from our records. Our project is as much about sharing the photographs as it is collecting information about them for future generations, as they will be held at the Greater Manchester County Records Office. So please help us if you recognise anything by adding to our Memory Book.
