Black & White imagec1907. View shows the south side of Kirkgate, from Old Crown Yard to Wharf Street, with the former old Crown Inn, used as shop premises for Mr Smith, medical botanist, and Tolson's noted tripe shop. A notice above the doors says that the property was used by the Ancient Order of Foresters (Friendly Society) and was the birthplace of "Forestry", with "Court No. 1 established here in 1790". The Ancient Order of Foresters was actually founded in Rochdale in 1834, but its origins were in a much earlier society, The Royal Foresters, formed in the 18th century, who would have been the ones who met in this building in 1790. The Property was demolished in 1935. Photograph by Alf Mattison.
