A few years ago when Rochdale-Past was just a Facebook page called Rochdale Past Present & Future I was introduced to a wonderful guy I hope I can now call a friend.


Harold Howarth kindly donated his collection of photographs that he had gathered while working for Rochdale Council. I told him I would display each and every one for the people of Rochdale to enjoy. And now although it has taken some time, I will be adding to this collection daily until my promise has been fulfilled.


I’m sure you will join me in thanking Harold firstly for preserving these treasures but mostly for sharing them with all of us. Thank you Harold, your a true Rochdale gent.







More great photo’s added daily, please keep coming back
