Re: Now and Then - Waterfoot.

I tried to get the original view as exact as I could.

I think the Now and Then's are better when they are like that.

Re: Now and Then - Waterfoot.

I'm sure there's an even older view from this spot somewhere on Rossendale Online.

It could a Now, Then and Before Then.

50p to the first person to find it!

Re: Now and Then - Waterfoot.

Found the even older photo ...... So, 50p to me!

It's not quite the same angle, but not too far out.





Cheers.

The original view that Johnny posted was actually taken by my Great Great Uncle John Cook.

Cracking Now and Then.

I'm assuming the top picture is from the early 60's, before the railway closed. Anyone have a date for it?

Re: Now and Then - Waterfoot.

I used to visit my Grandfather in Booth Road in the mid 1950's (very small then, of course!) and remember how dark Bacup Road was. Came back last year and the biggest impression was the sense of space now the railway embankment has gone. Also, used to visit a relative in the terrace on the extreme right of photo (last house before The Glen), and the light in those homes now must be so different.
(I knew the story about the hole in the road in The Glen because I have heard a 'Bacup Times' talk!!)
