Standing On The Corner

Each Button on the map below represents one or more photographs taken in that area.
Alternatively, there are text links lower down this page, or you can use the navigation arrows that are on each area's page.

Almost all of these photographs, and there are over a hundred, were taken with a small digital camera, which was one of the first available and was totally lacking of the bells and whistles that are found on today's digital cameras. The pictures are of low quality but give the viewer an idea of what Stainforth looked like at the dawn of the New Millennium.
Be sure to close each photograph window before proceeding to the next!)

If you see the Info Buttonat any time, then clicking on it will provide you with more information
