Norfolk Square, Partington Theatre, Nat West Bank and Norfolk Arms. What was the street called on the far left? Image from a digital collection by Bert Baker.


Once a year the Glossop and District Photographic Society would hold its annual exhibition in the Town Hall. For a bit of fun Cliff Hales would occasionally make a quiz, with some "mystery" photos of Glossop, and a modest prize for the winner. This photo is from his 1974 quiz, photo courtesy of Cliff Hales.
