Lost and forgotten streets of Salford ........... nu 25 a busy day on Chapel Street

I suppose it is pretty much the case that Chapel Street has always been a busy spot.

I don’t have a date but there maybe a clue in the Union flag fluttering from the building and the crowds which seem to suggest that something has either happened or about to.

  1. I would date it as post 1901, as the Trams began then and pre 1914 by the style of dress, Dresses began to get shorter and not as full during the WW1, young girls did show an ankle. The crowd mostly have their backs to us so it looks like they are leaving Manchester, maybe headed for the races?
