Our top picture this week shows a group of female operatives working at the Rists Wires and Cables factory on Pickup Street.
Former Observer photographer Garth Dawson snapped the picture in 1964.
He said: “The firm produced electrical wiring for cars.
“The firm no longer exists the factory has been demolished to make way for a housing estate.”
Our next picture shows a group of students studying hard at Paddock House School in Oswaldtwistle during the 1970s.
Garth said: “It was a Catholic girls’ school with around 300 pupils.
“It was closed and demolished in the 1990s.”
The final picture shows a row of shops that once stood directly opposite Accrington Town Hall.
Garth said: “The picture was taken in the 1930s.
“The row was called Piccadilly and again, they were demolished to make way for the building that now stands there.”
