Rare police photos unlock memories of Greater Manchester town's past
Images show police officers patrolling the streets and shops of the bustling town centre
A rare set of police photographs capture life half a century ago in a Greater Manchester town.
The town is set to get a new market hall and Bradshawgate, its main shopping area, is set to be overhauled.
This news comes on top of another cash injection for Leigh last month where £20m was promised over a 10-year period to help regenerate high streets and tackle anti-social behaviour.
With the funding being good news for the town and its residents, we've found some rare photographs taken of Leigh town centre around 50-years ago.
The archive photos capture how the streets of the town's main shopping streets once looked, and are sure to bring back some fond memories.
