    Here’s another image from our ever-increasing online photo collection. This one’s*the choice of Ruth Leach, our*Interpretation Developer:
    Over the last year or so I’ve frequently turned to our image collection for inspiration for the Station Hall redevelopment. When I was looking at how stations had celebrated royal arrivals, I found this one of George V and Queen Mary arriving at Rochdale station in 1913. I love it not only for the fantastic hats and foliage, but also because I grew up a few miles down the road and have used those steps myself. I have to say I’ve never seen the station look quite this good – but it’s great to see somewhere I know captured in a moment of time.
    More info about the image on its photo page.
