Slideshow Success at Discovery Centre

LAST Saturday, visitors to the Cheadle Discovery and Visitor Centre were given the opportunity to view a video sideshow of historic images, compiled by volunteer Mike Plant (also secretary to the Cheadle and District Historical Society).

The day was also a chance for visitors to contribute their own pictures into a digital archive.

Both aspects of the day were a great success and it turned out to be one of the busiest days on record for the centre. As the volunteers hoped, a number of interesting images were brought in for scanning by visitors.

As well as becoming part of the archive, these will be included in future sideshows and used in displays at the centre.

No date is set for the next event, but for those who missed the sideshow, or would like to see it again, it can be viewed at the centre on a computer monitor during normal opening hours, which are: Thursday: 10am-4pm, Friday: 1pm-4pm and Saturday: 10am-4pm.

To find out more information about the centre on the internet, visit the website discovercheadle.co.uk, see the Facebook page (facebook.com/discovercheadle) and on Twitter look for #discovercheadle. If you wish to contact the Discovery Centre by telephone, Alan Wigley can be reached on 01538 753519.

Pictured are two pictures that were brought in on Saturday by Pat Nutt.

Above: Sitting on the front row fifth to the left is Arthur Salt, the son of Frederick Salt. This picture was taken on the outcroppings site, on Leek Road.

Left: The only thing we know about this photo is that Frederick Salt is pictured on the back row 8th from the left.

Does anyone have any idea what the occasion might be, or who else is featured?
