Barely visible is the Lancashire Fusiliers South African War Memorial, moved here from Market St in the 1920s.

This railway line heading off to the right passes under Knowsley St and Manchester Road and then turns sharp left and right joining the Manchester-Bolton St line (forming a triangle) and going on to the bottom of the image to Rawtenstall.

This railway line is still in use by the East Lancs Railway, and is going off to the right to Bury Bolton Street Station and then on to Ramsbottom and Rawtenstall.

Buckley Wells Sheds - now an independent locomotive works dealing with preserved steam engines. The railway line passes out of the top of the picture - this was the main line to Manchester Victoria, which used a rare early electric "side contact" third rail. The Bury station was "Bury Bolton Street" still used by the ELR. When this line needed replacing, it was recommissioned as a light rail line (Metrolink). There was a new terminus and a new bus station, not in this image, but this line still joined with the tram line. This line is now part of the preserved East Lancashire Railway.

Yes it is. The giveaway here is that at the top near to where Manchester Road and Knowsley St join there is a small park with a monument, these still remain.
