Central Manchester Through TimeCode:
Manchester has a great cultural heritage, from the Halle Orchestra, founded in 1858, to the first regional repertory theatre set up by Annie Horniman in 1908. 'Madchester' was at the centre of the UK music scene in the '80s. 2015 saw the opening of HOME - a major new £2.5 million arts centre. The skyline of Manchester is again being transformed. The Victorian men of Manchester would be surprised to see the vast modern buildings that now sit side by side with the old. Here we tell Manchester's story from Roman Britain through to the twenty-first century. This fascinating selection of photographs traces some of the many ways in which Central Manchester has changed and developed over the last century.
