  1. Your pictures actually show the front side of the Station, the back end is full of tram reversing sidings and industrial units and old mill buildings, also half the photos on this blog don’t work, apart from that I hope you are enjoying your northern oddessey, keep up the good work

    • I stand corrected. But to me the front side is the concourse across platforms 1 to 12.

      What surprised me, is that there is no obvious entrance to the station in my pictures.

      The sixties certainly left Manchester, a very badly-designed station, that is very pedestrian unfriendly.

      Abandoning the Picc-Vic tunnel was one of Harold Wilson’s worst decisions. And he made a few!
