Richard was recently invited by the Greater Manchester County Record Office to curate a set of images from the Manchester Local Image Collection on flickr. He used the collection extensively during a period of research and as such had a readymade set of images that he wanted to share and provide comments upon. The collection is a huge resource and available to all. The momentum is building to the reopening of Manchester Central Library in 2013, when previously inacessible collections will be archived and able to be searched. The Record Office and the Local Studies services will be combined into a mega-resource for those studying the region.
