    These are all so good. Thanks for sharing these. I love seeing a part of history. History of the buildings and our own.

    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    Suzi as rough and rough looking some of Manchester is like most cities it has some amazing buildings the museum of science and industry building is over 100 years old aswell, the museums the university midland hotel the list goes on and on of the history, Manchester town hall is historical and at one point they were going to knock it down!

    Yup hotel and apartments a courtyard and more Jarre and about time

    The owner of the Brittannia hotel had it for years he did nothing with it refused to sell it fought of a compulsory purchase order in the 80's or 90's but this time after a massive petition by the people of manchester did he then allow manchester council to purchase the firestation off him it has been more than a fire station though it has a very varied history

    Well the Arndale is now marble not that yukki yellow tile but they closed the underground market in the late 80s which is a shame it was brilliant and your not missing much in Oldham trust me
