Although not of Ashton, there are some excellent maps on this site.

It was interesting to note that in Manchester 1930 the Site of the art gallery and library was proposed where the current Piccadilly gardens were. In 1935 the library was built on Dickinson St., where it stands to this day.

The maps are quite interesting.

That's a really useful site Bill.  I have a rotten memory (unlike most here!) for where streets are in Ashton.  Should be a real help  :)
