This evening I attended a very enjoyable entertaining and fascinating history show hosted by historian and tv presenter Dan Snow. Stockport was mentioned in the second half of the show such as the railway viaduct, Stockport’s hat industry, the air raid shelters and the Plaza theatre. The Plaza has an amazing interior.
Here is my latest etching aquatint print of ‘Tiviot Dale Railway’ that I created yesterday from sketches and reference photos depicting the once active railway line and station. If you look closely, the print shows what has become of the area with a motorway and the new shopping development of Redrock. This print completes a set of three prints showing Stockport’s past.
