The Benjamin Hobson Archive: Fiddlers Ferry in 1901


These photographs date from about 1901. Benjamin Hobson was the Registrar of Births and Deaths for Penketh and Cuerdley. He wrote a brief history of the Penketh district in the 1880's. It exists only in hand-written form, and may be viewed at the Local History section of Warrington Library.



At the age of eighty he set about taking a series of photographs to illustrate his earlier history. His family has made this collection of images available to SCRS, and to Warrington Museum, from whom copies may be obtained. SCRS has made use of only a small number of pictures - those featuring Fiddlers Ferry.
