Scope and Content

These photos are of the Blackwater Street chapel and the Clover Street chapel, as well as the people involved with both of these churches and Rochdale Unitarianism generally, such as Spedding. Some of the photos feature the tombstones of people connected with the chapels or local Unitarianism. The images of the chapels show the outside and inside of them from several different angles. Most of the images are from the late 19th century, before or around the time the two chapels were amalgamated. There are some portraits of other Unitarian ministers from the area, such as a Rev Cook. There are also photos of events at the chapels such as a harvest festival in 1895.
