A Walk in a City of Contrasts: Manchester on Friday

Last Friday, I was in Manchester to do a magazine interview. Along my route from the station, I took a few photos.

My route (more or less).

As I followed the route I'd worked out, I was very pleased to spot this chap, who'd appeared in one of softfruit's recent posts:
Manchester 070613 (1) Manchester 070613 (2)

Manchester is very much a mix of ages and styles of buildings. I wondered what this one had been, and what was going to replace it:
Manchester 070613 (18)

A little further along, I turned back to spot this mix of old and new, business and pleasure:
Manchester 070613 (17)

More contrasts on two busy junctions. Usually I prefer not to have people in the shots, but the cars and the homeless guys all add to the stories here:
Manchester 070613 (14) Manchester 070613 (13)

Tib Street, which I remember as the home of New Aeon Books:
Manchester 070613 (12)

My destination:
Manchester 070613 (11)
