David Lloyd - A Historical Photo Tour of Churchgate, Bolton
 



Although the subject matter was specifically regarding Churchgate, Bolton, the themes of David's talk and the images he showed could well have applied to many towns and cities. Especially those that have undergone dramatic changes over the last 250 years.
From a semi-rural landscape, through rapid development, due to industrialisation, to a slower, but nevertheless continuing change down the years.
The photo tour of Churchgate reflected the social and economic featues through time, in particuar, David's building by building journey that explored the past and present, if still standing, of each.
A lively and engaging presentation by David, making a welcome return to speak to the society.
