Modification of the original description - 30/04/12

It was taken in May 1894 Algy and the people were waiting for Queen Victoria's admiralty yacht 'The Enchantress' to pass through as it made it's way along the MSC for the Queens use as part of the grand opening ceremony.

Thanks for the information Dizzy.

The photo title reads "1904. A rare photo of Northwich Road swing bridge Stockton Heath". I am not sure that the date is correct as there appears to be no water in the canal also there is something of interest to attract a large crowd of people, it's possible that they are watching the filling of the canal with water, that would date the photo as 1894, however I can't confirm this, any information would be welcome.

But to what are we progressing? I often wonder. :unsure::D

I agree to a point Cleo, the infrastructure had to be updated to cater for the gradual increase in traffic and unfortunately the buildings were in the way, consequently the inevitable happened, with the old buildings going the visible history of the town goes with them!. :unsure:

You are welcome Algy.

 

Here's a picture from the same book showing the queens yacht passing through Stockton Heath. Not a very good picture I'm afraid.

It doesn't look very regal though does it.... and when I just googled her yacht in 1894 is looks slightly different to that.

 

A good pics of her yacht and some others going down the canal here
