Author: Steven Dickens

The Borough of Trafford includes Flixton, Urmston, Davyhulme, Stretford, Old Trafford, Ashton-on-Mersey, Sale, Bowdon, Hale, Hale Barns and Altrincham, as well as Partington, Carrington, Timperley and Trafford Park. North and South Trafford are separated by the River Mersey, the historic boundary between Lancashire and Cheshire until the Borough’s formation. Trafford is also home to Manchester United Football Club, Lancashire County Cricket Club, the Imperial War Museum North and the Trafford Centre.

In Trafford: The Postcard Collection the various towns of the Borough are represented, including lesser-known views of the Trafford Park industrial estate and rural views of Carrington, Ashton-on-Mersey and Partington, which are often overlooked. The book takes the reader on an evocative journey into Trafford’s past through a selection of old postcards that offer a fascinating window into the history of this area of north-west England.
