More about this scene

In 1892 the town's sewage works was opened. It was a state-of-the-art facility, so whatever the residents of Sale flushed down their loos was chemically purified before it was pumped into the Mersey (up to 750,000 gallons a day); the sludge was sold for fertilizer.

Memories of Sale, Town Hall c1955

Hi There Does anyone remember Riversdale School (Miss Churchills) on Broad Road Sale. Would love to hear from anyone that went to this small private school during the 50's. I have some lovely fond memories of the school. Remember Susie the spaniel? Please reply if YOU remember. Regards Kath

Growing up I took ballet and tap with Mrs Driver who lived on Baxter Road. She would put a show on at the Town Hall probably around 1948-1952. Also, there would be Chrsitmas Parties there.

I lived at 73 Marford Crescent before moving to 45 Moss Lane (over the road from St Mary's church). I was a member of 2nd Ashton scouts. I then joined the RAF. What a great time I had!

I used to work in the TSB down School Road in 1965/1966. I walked up from Glebelands Road swinging my wicker basket. Sometimes I got a lift off the milkman, it took me longer but he was very nice. I spent my time watching them build Boots and the new precinct.
