23/06/2023

“Through an Edwardian Camera” – a portrait of Saddleworth 1901-1910, has been recently reviewed by the Saddleworth Historical Society as "An interesting and entertaining book and a good read, it’s a welcome addition to Peter and Michael Fox’s previous excellent Saddleworth Museum and Gallery publications.” The book is available for £10 from Saddleworth Museum and draws on the very best of the ‘Old Saddleworth’ photographic archive, contained within the authors collection. Peter and Michael, they have aimed to portray something of the allure and fascination of Saddleworth during the Edwardian age, that brief gap between the end of Victorian England and the run up to the cataclysm of the 1st World War. £10 from the museum shop and available online at https://www.saddleworthmuseum.co.uk/shops/shop-online/

It is rare that a registered charity like Saddleworth Museum and Gallery can help out another worthy cause. Today we were able to donate the few remaining plants from our plant sale (see 28th May) to Julie Ryan . A mother who created a sensory garden at Royal Oldham Hospital in memory of her 9 year old daughter. The garden is on your left as you leave Lucy Pugh outpatients toward the garden prayer room. Julie is appealing for more plants and someone to create a "resin" work to enhance the garden. Please message her if you think you can help. See https://www.facebook.com/julie.ryan.587606
