  1. Michael Armstrong says:

    Hello, I’m writing a short story based in Prestwich that I’ve set in the early 1930’s. I’m interested in being factually accurate. Would somebody have got the tram or bus down Bury New Road into Manchester at this time? Also, do you have any aerial shots of the clough area from this time?
