Waingate, Berry Brow



A high-resolution downloadable scan of an undated black and white photograph looking east up Waingate, Berry Brow, taken from the junction with Woodhead Road (also known as Parkgate).

Although undated, the photograph is from before the mid-1960s when much of the housing in the Berry Brow and Deadmanstone area was demolished. Some of the properties on the right-hand side of the road survived and are currently shops and take-aways. The original photographer is unknown.

The photograph was scanned at 2,400 dots per inch (DPI), giving a final image with dimensions of 14,857 by 11,548 pixels. Several minor blemishes were sympathetically restored using Adobe Photoshop.
