Clockmaker Edward Moore - a Memory of Haslingden.

Clockmaker Edward Moore, born in Kendal on 26/6/1872 was also an optician who had a shop at 13 Manchester Road, Haslingden. This can just be seen as it was in the 1950s on the extreme left of this photograph. Ted, as he was called, was responsible for the supply of the clock mechanisms for both Victoria Park (opened 1908) and Helmshore Memorial Park (opened by the Porritts on 24 June 1922).
