1940's Market - 70 years on.

It is 70 years since the 'Outbreak of War' and the opening of Stockport's Air Raid Shelters.

Saturday 24th October was the day chosen to commemorate this event with activities down the Air Raid Shelters as well as in the Market Place.

Many people turned out to join in the day and the Trust's stall full of 1940's items, brought back memories for many as well as giving others the chance to try army dress and old fashions.

The G.I presence gave the whole event atmosphere and their expertise with the 'Jitterbug' got everyone's feet tapping.
