We welcome the contribution of any photo of Burnage-people, places or events- for the Burnage archive we are building. We accept originals or scanned copies of at least 300dpi bitmark.
If necessary originals can be scanned and returned.
School photos are an invaluable record of the younger residents of the past. This one is of Green End Juniors c 1957 and shows Mr Wilkinson, one of the finest teachers ever, and also Mr Hankey, the Headmaster.
Do you recognise anyone?
We would welcome copies of other school photos you might have.
This is the original National Schoolroom at St Margaret's Church, the first official day school built in the township.
It has now been demolished by the church to make a car park. Yet another Burnage historic building to be lost for posterity.
Has anyone older photos of it or other Burnage buildings.
Rose Queens were a popular feature of Burnage life in the past, with various churches and other organisations competing for regal prominence. The BA or Burnage Community Association had a particularly good reputation for organising a Rose Queen Pageant. Can you recognise any of these? We appreciate information putting names to faces.
We would appreciate help in identifying other photos in our collection
