An illustrated timeline of a Lancashire town called Rochdale. The scroll depicts Roman, Norman, Medieval times, the Industrial revolution to 21st century architecture.
Historical research by Mary Smith.
We started this personal project in early 2014.
A ten metre long scroll version was commissioned and displayed at the Rochdale Literature and Ideas festival 2014.
With thanks to staff at: Rochdale Literature and Ideas festival, the Maskew collection, Touchstones Local Studies Centre, Pioneers Museum, Arts & Heritage Service in Rochdale, National Co-operative Archive & Peoples History Museum in Manchester for facilitating and assisting with material for this project.
