Altrincham Town Centre Map 1910

A map that is over 100 years old shows Altrincham town centre flooded with local independent businesses in a time before Tesco’s and Marks and Spencers.

We have featured this map on our social media a few times but thought we would share it on the site as well, it shows a map of Alltrincham town centre from 1910 and was shows the layout of the town as well as adverts promoting local businesses. This map was produced in a time before Sat Navs, GPS and the interweb and would be a valuable addition to visitors and residents of Altrincham to help them get around and show them what is on offer in the town.

This map was produced to mark the opening of the Altrincham and Sale Chamber of Commerce in 1910, 102 years later the town is almost unrecognisable but the industrious attitude of independent retailers still applies as Altrincham businesses find more modern ways to advertise their services.
