As a Macclesfield journalist for four decades and editor of the Macclesfield Express for twenty-four years, Doug Pickford has delighted Maxonians with his weekly 'Old Macc' column, as well as compiling a number of books on the Macclesfield of days gone by. Here he has brought together a charming selection of previously unused photographs of 'Treacle Town' which are sure to fascinate Maxonians near and far. This compilation of over 200 photographs not only illustrates aspects of the town in the nineteenth century, but also shows people and places from the 1940s, '50s and '60s, evoking memories for many Macclesfield folk who may even have forgotten they were photographed on one special occasion or another. There are many previously unpublished gems within these pages and the book is sure to be of interest not only to those who were born and bred in Macclesfield, but also the many newcomers to this proud and well-loved town.
