Photographs of everyday life in 1960s and 1970s Salford have gone on display after the negatives were found in a carrier bag five decades on.

George Shepherd, 85, said he was "going to bin" his shots as he thought "they're not worth it".

But historian Tony Flynn said: "It's a social document."

Hundred of people have already visited the photo exhibition at Eccles Community Gallery, which runs until 1 June.

Mr Flynn said: "It captured Eccles at a time when it was vibrant, busy - there was full employment and people were enjoying themselves at the weekend."
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
