The Bus Station

I remember walking past the tea bar on my way from George Street to the bus station to catch either the 71 or the 80 to Stockport Road/Hare and Hounds, Timperley. I did this every day whilst being a pupil at North Cestrian Grammar School

Altrincham , Old Houses 1903

I have lived all my life in Altricham and I am thinking that these houses were opposite the library in Altrincham, that used to be next to the Stamford Hall. I can't remember the name of the road but these cottages had slate roofs in the 1960's when I saw them as a child. All the buildings were demolished in the late 1970's when Petros developments built what is now Rackhams etc .....

Cross Street 01

The large corner "shop" on the left was the showroom of North West Gas where you could pay your gas bill. This is now Dawsons music and instrument shop. The corner shop on the right was Hawkins tailors, on two floors. This is now a MacDonalds restaurant.
