You can also visit our permanent exhibition, the Frederic Shields Gallery.

Swinton Then and Now by Swinton Photographic Society

Sunday 8 February 2015 to Sunday 10 May 2015

Members of the society used old photographs from Salford's Local History Library and took current images of exact locations, or as close as possible, as they appear today. The images captured and displayed in this exhibition will not only demonstrate just how remarkably, or perhaps not in some instances, such locations have changed, but also how the people and life in Salford have changed over the past decade.

This exhibition coincides with a selection from their annual show at Salford Museum and Art Gallery, on display from Saturday 25 April to Sunday 28 June 2015.
