Photography has been an important way of recording history for nearly 200 years. Our MP, Edwards Timpson, reminded us that we were recording history when he viewed an exhibition of ours and it was no surprise to soon find ourselves helping the local history societies. We join their Crewe & District Local History Association committee meetings and help with anything we can; archiving old prints and slides, picturing buildings before demolition and recording items of all kinds.

This week’s picture of the week was one of many taken by members to generally picture Crewe at the present time – any idea where it is?

Answer: Decoration on the Municipal Building façade. Pevsner thought the decorations were out of scale with the building. What do you think?
