AN APPEAL has been launched to trace the origins of historical photographs.

Amateur historian Craig Brisbane, born and bred in Prestwich, wants to find out more about photographs of a large house and its interior, before his exhibition at Prestwich Library next month.

Mr Brisbane said: “I encourage anyone who knows anything at all to contact Prestwich Library on 0161 7720311.”

The exhibition will feature a range of letters, documents and objects documenting Prestwich’s history, including commemorative items and minute books from the Co-op during the First World War.

The exhibition will run on September 2 and 3 from 9am to 1pm.
