Archives+ at Longsight Neighbourhood Festival June 23 2013

You would expect a date in midsummer to be warm and sunny but June 23rd 2013 was cold and wet. It didn’t dampen the spirits of visitors to the Longsight Neighbourhood Festival and the Archives+ team got a warm welcome and lots of visitors to their stand.

Longsight Market, 1986

Photographs of the market in the 1980s sparked memories.

Victoria Baths, 1955

People recognised Victoria Baths as where they went swimming from school.

Crowcroft Park Bandstand, Longsight

Best of all our photos of Crowcroft Park and its bandstand were very relevant as there are proposals to restore the park.
