There must be an original somewhere but the source image for the photo on the Tour is a photo of a newspaper cutting. Here's a larger version, which is actually much bigger than the source itself.

This is the best we can do unless a proper photo version turns up (click it for larger version):

A handful of older images have been squeezed in between the Carnival uploads to the Virtual Tour this morning.

These include some shots of Harold E Shaw Butcher of Marple Bridge, an old but undated aerial view of Marple and some photos of a commemorative key from the 1893 opening of Marple Bridge Co-Op.

I don't suppose we have any idea of whether there is an original photo of the arial view anywhere? That's quite fascinating and I'd love to know what date it was taken. It looks pre-swimming baths to me but the quality's not really good enough for a more detailed analysis.

I found my house, standing all alone on the edge of the village whereas now, it's a few minute's walk from the centre.

The chap on the far left of the picture is definitely my grandad, George Williamson, and year is 1923.

Thanks for the info SGK, I've added it as a comment to the image - but as a registered user of the Tour you should be able to do it yourself if you wanted.

More details in this thread http://www.marple-uk.com/smf/index.php?topic=3381.0

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

The photograph http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?album=113&pid=6043 has caption "Pupils at Ludworth School with headmaster Mr. Harold Butterworth. Undated but probably in the late 1920s or early 1930s. From Marple Local History Society Archives.".

The chap on the far left of the picture is definitely my grandad, George Williamson, and year is 1923.

It is exactly 100 years today that George J Wilkinson, President of Compstall Co-Op Society for 30 years until his death in 1941 aged 68, opened the new Co-Op on Market Street. This image of the opening ceremony has been on the Virtual Tour for some time:

http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?pid=2941

Today, three images of the key presented to George at the time have also been added to the Tour here:

All these images have kindly been provided by Edmund Wilkinson, George's grandson.

A dozen new photos from Marple Local History Society's Archives have been added to the Tour this afternoon.

These are new additions since the scanning of earlier folders so they cover all kinds of subjects.

Got quite a few to add like this and they really are fascinating stuff!
