The Cemetery Gates - Whalley New Road


Strange subject for a postcard, but the Victorians and Edwardians were very proud of all their public areas / places, even the cemetery. I suppose when all three chapels were still standing and the graves, paths and greenery, were well maintained, it would be a nice place for a stroll.
That kid in the foreground was always hanging around the gates, even when I was a youngster in the 1960's. Strange little chap. He was still dressing like the Artful Dodger, right up to 1970.
