This page shows a selection of older photographs showing the Rochdale Canal in Manchester. They have been carefully matched with more recent images showing the same location from as near as possible a similar viewpoint.
Move your mouse pointer over each photo to show a post-restoration image of the location. (This required CSS to be enabled, which it usually is.)
More archive images will appear here before long.
Feedback on the mouse-over effect used on this page would be welcome.
If you have any interesting older photographs of canals covered by this website which you would be willing to share, please contact the webmaster.
