*******************************************************



(above) Here are two great photos sent in by John Clegg.  The first photo shows John at the age of about 8 standing on a ladder which was propped up against the stable wall in the back behind the shop on Hargreaves Street.  John says the access from George Street would be off to the right of the photo.  The second photo shows John at 10 with a new cycle, with David Hayhurst on either side of John's mother.  As far as he recalls it's the only photo he has which shows both shop windows in it. 

Thanks to John Clegg for this superb photo which was taken in Clegg Street outside of the Spencer's house. As far as John can remember it was a coach trip organized by Mrs. Spencer to celebrate the Coronation in 1953.

The above 3 photos are kindly shared to us by Mr. John Clegg and they show Calf Hey Reservoir at the top from 1962.  The second photo shows a view from NW of Hog Lowe Clough and Fairy Glen again taken in the 1960s.  And the bottom phot shows a weir at Fairy Glen that was swept away in the floods on 18th July 1964.




The two photos above have been kindly shared to us by Mr. John Clegg, son of Mr. Sam Clegg whom had the clothes shop on Hargreaves Street for many years. I remember it well going there as a child for school uniforms etc.  The photos depict bedspreads or other materials being loaded or unloaded into a wagon from Messrs. Ivanovics whom had the premises across the road, the photo is from the 1950s.  The bottom photo depicts the old type of dustbin wagons, Haslingden had back in the 1950s.

Old Document (Land League 1910 Bazaar)


 

Thanks to Michael Mullaney for kindly scanning the booklet and allowing us to share it:

This is a fabulous piece of Haslingden local history contained within the following pages and the bazaar came about by the Club needing to raise enough funds to purchase their new Club which was and is in George Street.

The programme shows photos of the various Committees formed for the purpose of carrying out various task to raise funds. Some of these names and their families are still strongly represented throughout our town and the document is a great source of local family history and interest. 

Obviously because of the age of the document most of the business represented within the adverts are no longer trading, yet their legacies thankfully live on in history.

Highly recommended for a really good read.....
