Stamford Park Conservatory. Ashton Under Lyne.
« on: Friday 09 August 19 18:01 BST (UK) »
Hello to all,

I have brought you some tough stuff over the years, but this takes the biscuit, this picture is taken from a forum trying to save the conservatory as the council has earmarked it for demolition. It's 1907 built and a beautiful building with lots of memories with banana tree's and other exotic plant's only ever seen on Pathe news by local folk at that time, we have managed to get a temporary reprieve by the intervention of the Heritage Society. I know it's a tough ask, virtually no DPI to work with, BUT If possible can we clean and add a little colour.
As the conservatory was not opened until 1907, can anyone date this pic from the attire?

Many thanks for any efforts,

Kind Regards,

Peter.
Harris, Kemp,

A date of 1907 would be quite close to when this was taken.

Thank you for the date info, I just found out the original picture was actually a post card size, so only around 5x3 inches in old money.

Just cleaned up a little, and taken some of the very brown out.
