As you are probably aware we are really proud of our image archive and take every opportunity to show off what we have!! To celebrate the New Year we have two exciting projects coming your way! A fabulous new display of more recent photographs all published in the Bury Times during the 1990s (more of this in a later posting) and a beautiful pack of eight postcards on sale here at the archives.
Included in the pack are four prints from original art work by the talented Lee Crocker: vibrant and lively watercolour renditions of local landmarks you will instantly recognise plus a very special lino-cut print of Peel Tower! The rest of the pack contains images of Bury, Prestwich and Ramsbottom from a variety of decades. The postcards will soon be available in other outlets in and around Bury – a great gift for relatives who have moved out of the area or something for you Buryites to keep and treasure; a memento of the town we all love.
