The area's heyday and transition. Old industries have gone evidenced by the recently disused branch of the Ashton canal, not yet in decay. The Ferranti works now established was to make a huge contribution to the war effort. The rubber works, mills and Bower Colliery provided employment for thousands. The trams of Oldham and Manchester Corporations stand in their respective territories awaiting rush hour custom, by Oldham's Hollinwood tram depot (closed 1938).The recently opened Hollinwood Avenue (horizontally East to West) delineates the course of the present M60 Motorway, and other than the North to South railway line (Metrolink light rail since 2012), just about everything else in this view has either disappeared or fallen into the M60 chasm which now dominates. The local employment and extent of population having evaporated without trace.
