Frank Mullineux Collection


Frank Mullineux was a Walkden resident who worked as a chemist on a chemical company on Linneyshaw Moss. Frank and his wife, Elsie, were enthusiastic historians with Frank becoming the curator of the Monks Hall Museum, Eccles up until its closure.

He has written several pamphlets about local issues and was a keen photographer and collector of old pictures. The majority of his collection was donated to Chethams School, Manchester. Here is a sample of some those pictures together with some from pictures collected by the late Anne Monaghan who was a assistant at both Walkden and Little Hulton libraries.
