Andrew Gwynne said:

“Over the years, I have managed to build up a huge collection of photographs from old and present-day Denton, so I decided to put them online to show how this town has changed over the many decades the collection covers.  Since uploading them on to Facebook, I have also been sent a large number of additional photos from other local residents and ex-pat Dentonians.  It’s certainly a great way to jog a few memories and to help keep the proud history of the town alive.”

People can view the photo albums by friending Andrew Gwynne on Facebook.
