Industrial Manchester: the old Dunlop factory
I don’t yet miss Manchester – not much, anyway. But I always appreciated its rugged charm, even if I didn’t necessarily enjoy wading through pools of sick on Sunday mornings*.
Manchester’s industrial past still casts a shadow on the present, even if the mills and factories of old are being converted into other uses at breakneck speed.
*We lived close enough to the students’ accommodation complexes. Too close, at times.
