Salford Then And Now

This exhibition has now ended.    Swinton & District Photographic Society was proud to participate in the Salford Then And Now project by exhibiting prints at Ordsall Hall between February 8th and May 10th 2015.    The exhibition consisted of a series of prints from photographs taken in the previous year alongside their old black and white version shot from the same location.    Feedback from the Hall was excellent with them stating higher numbers and longer linger times as people reminisced.   More details of the ongoing great work being carried out by Ian Sutton and his team, mainly willing volunteers, can be found at A press release on the event can be found here.
