"The Willows" market garden. "The Willows" house was just off picture and stood on the E side of Poundswick Lane. Glasshouses can just be seen as well as land surrounding house, which was used to grow cut flowers etc. The Willows Cottage stood next to the main house. The house was occupied by the Webb family from c.1929, and through the 1930's. I believe the cottage was occupied by the Manston family at this time. Emmie Webb and her two daughters Marjorie and Beryl are recorded as living at The Willows on the 1939 register. Norman, Emmie's husband, who ran the market garden, died in 1938 from anthrax poisoning after using infected bonemeal.

The Cedars: once the country home of Peers Groves, of the Groves & Whitnall brewery in Salford, and his family. After their day, and as the area was built up, it was for many years used as a local community centre. The house was finally demolished in more recent years, and now the offices of the Willow Park Housing Association stand on the site.

You're right. I was trying to use just one "peg" for the whole of the Civic, bus station included. Bit slothful, really ...

Alan Eve Cottage, I was born here in 1953 and the farmhouse dated back to Tudor times. It was my Mum and Dads first house and was actually owned by the Dean family. I remember Annie Dean and used to walk with her over to the Cedars and the Smithy.

This area was not in fact incorporated into Manchester until the early 1930s. At this time it was still part of the civil parish of Northen Etchells in the Bucklow Rural District (headquartered in Knutsford) of the county of Cheshire.

Glad to have been of help. I've no memory of this area when it was open countryside, as Brownley Green was one of the first areas of the Wythenshawe estate to be developed with housing, only a year or two after this picture was taken. But maps of the period show that the hamlet of Brownley Green had a distinctively shaped village green at its centre, and that, along with the proximity of Park Wood - which still exists - just to the east, made the identification pretty easy. After that, the other landscape features fell into place and made the location unambiguous.

The only "unlocated" shot in the particular flight in April 1927 which covered the localities south of Manchester. The camera takes in a view to the east, with the then hamlet of Poundswick (it was just west of the present Wythenshawe Civic Centre) in the foreground, Brownley Green in the middle distance, Crossacres beyond, and with the line of Styal Road at the top of the photograph.

This is likely to be in Cheshire from the adjoining image locations. Somewhere in the Altrincham area perhaps.
