Forgotten photographs of Salford’s past have been rediscovered and shown together for the first time in this exhibition.
Taken in the 1960s by local lad George Shepherd, they capture a vibrant northern town showing parts of Eccles, Salford and Manchester. Saved by the photographer’s daughter over 50 years later, they reveal people at work, rest and play, including Silcock’s Travelling Fair, house parties and Eccles Carnival.
