hi folks ray griffiths will very shortly be ready to post about 40 unseen photos of the salford bridge area...he has spent a lot of time time cleaning them up before he posts them ..i believe they are on glass plate...

could i please ask members not to make any comments about these photos until ray has posted all of the photos as he would prefer them to run consecutively so watch this space folks...many thanks ray for taking the time to share these photos with us

Ray, I always credit the owner of the pics (where known) and will certainly will do so in your case. I lived near there donkeys years ago, Queens Rd and Vicarage Rd. If I do a painting it will be donated to the raffle at our next meet assuming we ever have one. Thanks Eric

Ray, you have quite a few photos of the waterworks building. Was it of any special interest to you? I did go in it before it was demolished.

Caught a few good roach in the cut a bit further up around the Barn Social.
There was a place where water was flowing into the canal from the opposite bank just by the bridge before you get to the Barn. That spot always had fish

Was that Queens Road off Slade Road? If so my nan lived at number 20. When she was 94 I had to drive her all over Spaghetti Junction, did about 50 plus miles in the company car at 6pence per mile
