We are on the allotments with the Park to our rear looking out towards Sandy Lane.
Back in 1903 my friend Ann’s grandfather lived at number 72 Sandy Lane.
She grew up in Chorlton on Barlow Moor Road and has contributed a rich set of memories and pictures from the 1950s and 60s.
It would be fun to find people who were working those allotments at the time and may have their own stories and pictures to add to the collection.
The painting and photograph will date from sometime in the 1960s and are a reminder that not all things change.
