Manchester

1 Mar

Very nice framing, almost like a painting. Ancoats – one of Manchester’s most interesting places. Wouldn’t have liked to have worked in the mills myself, but would have loved to have seen Ancoats before some very brutal demolition. Still plenty to see, but surely if it hadn’t been demolished, it would have been on par with some of most visited places on the planet. Just look at The Rocks in Sydney – one of Sydney’s most visited places. What Ancoats loses on sun, it certainly more than makes up on history.

    Great photos.

    Looking back over a century I’ve unloaded a sketch by Frank L Emanuel from 1905

    Does anyone have a copy of his Manchester Sketches available?

      Wonderful pictures John. What a shame so many of Ancoats finest buildings were allowed to deteriorate and be demolished.
