Then and Now
Welcome to Then and Now, where each week we compare images of Manchester streets, landmarks and buildings from bygone days with how they look now.
This week our image shows Oldham Street in 1900. There’s a real hustle and bustle about the place as people flock to its shops and stores.
Pedestrians avoid the trams as they carefully make their way over the tracks and cobbles in the middle of the busy thoroughfare.
