A number of photos provided by Carole O'Halloran - born in Marple in 1945 (Carole Clayton) - from Australia have been added to the Virtual Tour this morning.

The photos include the crowning of Carole's mum Florence Clayton as "Legion Queen of Marple" with a fantastic procession along Market Street and the crowning, which probably took place in Marple Memorial Park.



There is also a photo of Carole's dad Percy outside 5 Goyt Avenue in 1926. Percy still lives with Carole in Oz and they will celebrate his 104th birthday in August!

Here's a recent article with a photo of Percy:

What a truly wonderful set of photo's. Any idea who those "visitors" to the bridge were? Any idea when it was taken.... Not sure a picture taken today would have the same impact in 100 years time (but I could be wrong).

Sadly there is no information with the images as to who they were or when it was, although I would guess by the clothing that the two large groups on the bridge are pre-WWI, around 1905-1910-ish. I always include any info that is available in the captions but all too often there is none. I'm not sure about pictures in 100 years having the same impact - perhaps they will - but it's important to make a note on the back of dates and names because they are so much more interesting when you know something about them. It also needs a little thought - quite often people will write "me with aunty Hilda" but in 100 years nobody will have any idea who "me" is :(

The additions feature many interior shots previously unseen and including the often described John Bradshawe oak bed with carved mottos and the magnificent staircase long before the roof fell in.

Some more images from Marple Local History Society's "Mellor" folders uploaded this morning. These include some great photos of Mellor Lodge. What a great shame Samuel Oldknow's home didn't survive.
