View from top of Bolton Institute of Technology 1976

Another set of images that are "out of area" for Turton Local History Society, but are of local interest.  These photographs were taken by Helen Heyes in November 1976 from the roof of Bolton Institute of Technology.  They were scanned in 2020 as part of a project to digitise the Turton Local History Society slide archive.
