Looking down on the Chorlton green .................... 1925


An occasional series dedicated to looking down at Chorlton from the air. 

Here is the green in 1925 taken from an Imperial Airways aircraft.

At first glance there is little that has changed, but the village school would still have been in use, the Horse and Jockey would have occupied a small foot print, and on Beech Road the smithy and Joel House had yet to vanish.

Location; Chorlton
