Town Hall talking... Councillor Brian Millard

[Excerpt from Stockport Times 17 Aug 06]
Last week, one of our council employees discovered copies of a booklet titled An Account of the Town Hall of the County Borough of Stockport in the Town Hall strong room.
It's a fascinating narrative - with plans of each floor, a large number of photographs and the names of long-departed aldermen and councillors.
Also of interest is the list of contractors, from Stockport, Manchester and London. In those days, the architect not only designed the building, but also the furniture, which was constructed by a Cheltenham firm and remains today.
