About Trafford Lifetimes

Trafford Lifetimes is a searchable database providing an opportunity for the people of Trafford to contribute photographs and reminiscences, illustrating both the past and present.

Low resolution images suitable for school projects are available to download for free. Glossy high quality images can be purchased online as you search the archive or directly from Trafford Local Studies at Sale Waterside.

The archive illustrates how both social and industrial developments continually change the area we live and work in and it will allow everyone of all ages to become directly involved in how they see the history of Trafford unfolding.

Through photographs and personal reminiscences, the archive will document changes as they take place and will provide us with a valuable learning resource for the future whilst also providing us with a unique record of the past.
