Manchester – a photographer’s dream

Two buildings stand in my home city of Manchester-separated by two hundred years. Great contrast of eras.

Things We Know; Things We Like

I was sifting through the next batch of photos for a new post on Manchester when I came across this one, which I felt merited a post all of its own.

As I have said previously, the Manchester canals linked with the Manchester Ship Canal, to bring raw materials right into the heart of the industrial north – the powerhouse of England at the time.  This old smelting works by the side of the canal would have taken raw material right off the barges for processing.  Now it offers a mirror image of the new Hilton Tower on Deansgate.

Almost a reflection of each other; just 200 years between them.

Manchester old and new
