A variety of photos of Marple UDC and Memorial Park from Marple Local History Society Archives have been added to the Virtual Tour this evening. I still need to add comments to some of them - hopefully tomorrow.

Another of the Marple Local History Society videos featuring local people talking about their memories has been uploaded to the Virtual Tour. This one is of Fred Winterbottom, who was born on Union Road in 1907, talking in 1996 to Gordon Mills as he filmed him.

The hour long VHS video has been converted to digital format and uploaded in six segments to make it easier for visitors to view without having to start at the beginning every time.

Here's the link: http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=116

A number of photos provided by Tom Lord of his family (Hall and Kirk) who lived at Stone Row, Townley Terrace, Brindley Avenue and Suttons Lane have been added to the Virtual Tour this morning. I'd like to commend Tom for putting as much information as he could on the back of his photos for future generations - everyone should do this!

Some new images uploaded to the Virtual Tour this evening include three from Arthur Procter of the rebuilding works at Brentwood / Macnair Court, and Ray Noble has been rummaging in his drawers and found some more Carnival photos, this time from 1979.

See: http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=0

Thank you Arthur and Ray!

A new album has been created on the Virtual Tour this morning to hold photos of Ludworth School. This is due to the addition of a large number of new images from Marple Local History Society's Archives mainly relating to headmaster Mr Harold Butterworth's reign between 1912 and (based on the pictures) the early 1930s. All images relating to Ludworth School in a variety of other albums have hopefully been tracked down and moved to this album too.

If anyone can add names to faces or firm up dates, most of which I've judged based on the extent of Mr Butterworth's hair loss, then please get in touch.

The complete Ludworth album can be viewed using this link: http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=113

Or to see the new additions: http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=0

I guess All Saints' should have their own album too!

14 images provided by Mrs. Selma Fielding, mostly Hawk Green related, have been added to the Virtual Tour this morning:

Does anyone know the date on the Reading Rooms foundation stone, which will obviously date one of the pictures!

Photographs by Arthur Procter taken at the National Civic Day / Marple Civic Society 50th Anniversary Picnic in Memorial Park last Saturday have been uploaded to the Virtual Tour this evening:

Also, some more Carnival pictures from Ray Noble that went astray during the server outage last week, plus a few of New Horizons from Bill Beard have been added to the 2011 Carnival album:

A new category and album have been added to the Tour this evening covering mystery photographs. The Mystery People album has been moved to this category along with a new album featuring Mystery Locations. This has been added so that we can display a box of glass slides from Marple Local History Society's Archives that may be local and maybe not. It may help us to figure out why they're in the archives if anyone recognises any scenes.

There is one that I think could be down at Dan Bank - I'm hoping our local expert on turnpikes and bridges, Tony Jones, will have a view. And if anyone recognises the rhinoceros I'd love to know!

A little earlier today some images from the launch of the 60 Years of History Exhibition launch were also added.

A handful of new images have been uploaded to the Virtual Tour this morning including some photos of Marple Lacrosse teams round 1922 - 24, some images from Lea Hall that have been loaned to Marple Local History Society by Rick Walker and a fine engraving of Samuel Oldknow.

Two batches of photos have been added to the Virtual Tour this morning - one features the demolition of Woodville Hall in 1994, and the other Turf Lea and Marple Ridge. It's interesting, and a little sad, to do a search for "Woodville" and compare these photos with the ones took by Ray Noble in 1993.

More photos from Marple Local History Society Archives have been uploaded to the Virtual Tour this morning. These are generally of Stockport Road or central Marple area and topically include some of the beginnings of the Co-Op on its present site:

http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=0

Several existing images have also been replaced with better copies:

http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?pid=657
http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?pid=754

http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?pid=783
http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?pid=788

The first of the above is of the Union Rooms (Regent Cinema) and that elusive lodge at the entrance to Memorial Park is shown fairly clearly, which I hadn't noticed on the earlier version.

And finally, some photos of the Mayor's annual trip on New Horizons have been added to their 30th Birthday album:
