Dowson Road 2009


The junction of Market Street and Dowson Road, taken from the end of Queen Street.

Compare it with Janet Howie's photograph of 1982 on Old Hyde.

Kelly's fishing tackle shop has gone along with three adjacent shops. The last building on Market Street is now Robinson's funeral directors. The whole junction has been widened up with a left hand filter and pedestrian crossings.

Wow that's quite a change, though to be fair there have been a great deal of changes throughout the Tameside area in the last 25 years.

Some areas becoming completely unrecognisable, like the Ashton Moss and Lord Sheldon Way.

I have to admit I prefer the photo from 1982 as it has so much more character. It's great how we can view different shots from different periods. Thanks Gerald.
