Can you help?

This area of our online archive contains some of the photos that have in some way previously eluded identification. It may be that we're trying to put a name, date or location to a photo or have another question about it.

We're keen to hear from anyone who can help to fill in some of the missing information on these images from the Historical Society archive...

Is this photo taken in Milldale Road?

Spondon Boys Football Team

Headmaster was Mr R J Hughes.

Spondon's Red Cross Hospital


The document here lists all of those and many names will be familiar around the community. If anybody in your family served at the hospital, Derek Hathaway would love to hear from you, especially if you have photographs or memorabilia. He can be contacted via [email protected]
