Now I am a great fan of the family snap and in some ways they win out for me over the carefully arranged photograph of the professional.
Often because they are a personal record they show us bits of Chorlton which the serious photographer would not touch and have a spontaneity lacking in the more formal compositions.
So here over the next few days are a few from Paul England whose family ran the grocers shop on St Clements’ Road.
It has featured before on the blog but always just as a building but here we have Mr England with three of his customers and it challenges you to come up with a comment.
