Old Maps of Salford

Historic Maps of Salford and the local area.

I lived in West Ashton Street from 1948 to 1968 when I got married and left. I remember Elaine and Lucille who lived in George Henry Street and there was a family at the top of the street who emigrated to Australia. My maiden name was Hall and I had a brother Kenneth.

My husband did an apprenticeship at Salford Electrical Instruments. He worked there when they moved to Barton Lane in Eccles.
