Gallery Oldham Exhibition: Peace and Plenty? Oldham and the First World War

  • Description

    Victory Parade at Rhodes Bank, Oldham, looking towards Mumps Bridge. Watercolour on paper by John Armitage. In 1918, when the fighting and fundraising stopped, the town had to deal with a deadly influenza epidemic, as it prepared for the first general election in which all men over the age of 21 and women over the age of 30 could vote.
