Photos of Royton and Oldham Borough.
I‘ve decided to take on a massive project restoring Photos of Royton and will include the whole of Oldham borough too.
The photo on this page sparked the idea, a truly iconic photo from Royton’s recent past and always brings pleasure to people who view it. You don’t find this kind of photo every day but that is the point of any photo album, magazine or online website. Browsing through photographs old or new is a pastime that will endure forever, the rewards are self evident and we love to find the fantastic one that spurs us on to look for more.
Medium restorations will be the target, some major restorations and plenty of colourising. I believe people will be surprised seeing my efforts with putting colour into old photos they may have seen before, I’ll keep most of them subtle so they keep the original nostalgic look and do some oomph ones that want to scream at us.
If you have any Photos of Royton or Oldham borough that you think need my help, just point me to them or upload them via the contact tab. I will do them for free on the condition I can use them at any time otherwise they wouldn’t fit in with the project (Photos for Royton and Oldham people).
As mentioned earlier, this photo of the Royton Grinnell Band has become an iconic masterpiece for the town, you can read a little more about it here.
