Mossley Photos in 1968 by Neil Mawdsley
In Praise of my Kodak Brownie 127 My old photos of Mossley were taken in 1968. I was a student at St Martins College, studying Geography and Mathematics. My final dissertation in Geography lead me to make a study of Mossley titled ‘Evolution of a Settlement.’ Handy for me, just a bus or bike ride away from my home in Oldham. Armed with my only camera, a trusty Kodak Brownie 127, I trudged around most of Mossley taking the standard black and white photos and a few colour ones. My research lead me far and wide chatting to various folk from Mayors to Blacksmiths and Librarians. I also researched many maps of the area. I thought it might be useful to put the photos on the internet, for people to see how things have changed over the years. I have over 30 images and detailed information.I may make some of these photos available as a print. On some photos I have added dotted white lines to show a particular feature more relevant to the geographer. The quality of photos is lower resolution for page download time.
Just a few photos here for now.
