It's definitely Mellor rec - you can tell from the houses in Gibb Lane, on the far right of the picture. 

Thanks Dave and Amazon - I've moved and re-captioned the image.

No that's not Marple Bridge. Used to be one back of Lower Fold Windsor Castle but it's not this one.

Including Craven (Mr?) who used to own it in the 1900s. Anyone know more about him?

Also there is a postcard labelled on the card itself as Marple Bridge Recreation Ground. It looks like the one in Mellor to me. Was / is there a Marple Bridge Rec?

Another 30 images from the MLHS archives have been added to the Virtual Tour this afternoon, mostly of Mellor / Moor End.

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

There's one annotated on the back as the "Miners Arms", which, according to Jack Turnbull's "Last Orders Please" was once at Moor End in Mellor. However, the sign over the door says the "Jordan Arms" and the landlord was William Butler. A bit of surfing suggests that this was in New Mills - can anyone confirm?

A selection of images from Marple Local History Society Archives relating to Roman Lakes and Samuel Oldknow have been added to the Tour this morning.

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

These include a Seasonal Greeting Card made by local historian Arthur Hulme and sent to one of his fellow Antiquarian Society members.



The archives also identified that the chap sat on Oldknow's Seat in this image already on the tour is the same Arthur Hulme.

A batch of photos from Marple Local History Society Archives taken during Town Street's darkest year - following collapse of the retaining wall - have been uploaded to the Virtual Tour this morning:

http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=-47

A photo of the water main burst that was already on the Tour has also been replaced with a much better copy:

Another 21 images from Marple Local History Society Archives, including a couple of mysteries again that you may be able to help with.

There are also three images from Hyde - I wouldn't normally include these but they are just too fascinating to leave out.

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

This particular image I think I've seen before but I can't locate it on the Tour. Do you recognise where it is?  
It's labelled on the back "Dooley Lane Cottages?" and "Harrisons Brow?". It doesn't seem to tie up with other images of Dooley Lane though.
