Nearly 3.2 Million image views on the Marple Website Virtual History Tour!
As I wrote the Christmas Greeting yesterday, the counter on the Virtual History Tour had reached 3,187,123 image views and there were more than 11,360 local images shared.
Another year focused on the skatepark project means that the Virtual Tour has continued to take a back seat but we've still managed to add over 850 photos during the last 12 months. The total number of images on the Virtual Tour has now reached 11,364 and they've been viewed an amazing 365,641 times since Christmas 2015.
There are still many images from Marple Local History Society's Archives to scan and a significant number of postcard images provided by collector Janet Holmes still to upload. So the Virtual Tour is set to continue growing throughout 2017.
For today, a dozen new images from Warwick Burton's collection (now in Marple Local History Society Archives) have been added to the Marple Railway Album:
I must confess to not knowing there was a Colliery Tramway on Ludworth Moor until scanning these images.http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=-23
