Visited with: Moorsy

This was one hell of a day out in Manchester. There are lots of places I
Just hadn't got around to doing and before I go back to work I wanted to do as
many as I could. Just so happened Moorsy was free all day too and Im glad
he got in touch with me because he really made it a fantastic day.

Anyway we got through 5 sites and almost got a 6th one in but had to foul on account of an alarming alarm sound.

Heres the pics, hope you like.

I came across these stills from the film 'Hell is a City', shot in Manchester in 1959 and released in 1960. They are from this site where the author has rather meticuously traced the shots from the film. He only has pictures of the Refuge Assurance Building from the ground though! Maybe some NWEX members could help him out with the missing comparison shots.
