Sale Photographic Society - Sale Millennium eScrapbook

Sale Millennium eScrapbook - Clive Robinson 12/08/13

The Millennium Scrapbook of Sale was an idea that came out of a Sale Photographic Society committee meeting just before Christmas 1999, and was put forward as a way that 'The Society' could leave a lasting legacy of its work, and provide an image of how Sale looked in the year 2000.

The idea was that all the members at the time were given a roll of FILM to record Sale's social history and all images were taken between June 2000 and May 2001. Seventeen sets of images were finally received and costs for the prints and film were sponsored by a small grant from the Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council.

It was always considered that the images weren't intended to be 'competition winners' but a record of Sale at the turn of the millennium. It has been decided that the Scrapbook should now be available in a digital form and be made available on the SPS website.

A number of commercially produced scanned image were also obtained but unfortunately some the CD's have deteriorated over the years so many images had to be rescanned from the original prints, some of which have started to fade.

Even though you may not think much has changed in Sale over the last thirteen years I am sure that you will spot many changes since 2000, but I noticed The Met/The Queen's is no longer there together with the Sale Civic Theatre which is now the Waterside. The Dove Cote has now been moved to Walkden Gardens. Sale running track is no longer there together with Bertram Finch Centre on Marsland Road. There are many new buildings and shop, banks, garages etc have changed their names and many buildings that were being built including Marks and Spencer's on Cross Street.

The general location is to give a rough location. However, some additional images can also be included.
