An Illustrated History

Vicki Masterson and Karen Cliff

Over the last 300 years Stretford has undergone dramatic change, from farming community to industrialised centre. But Stretford’s industrial history is only part of this wide-ranging account, which also features the Botanical Gardens of 1831, Manchester United’s Old Trafford football ground and fascinating photographs of Stretford during World War Two. The photographs are all from the unrivalled archive at Trafford Local Studies Centre.
