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 today.
This week it’s the turn of Oxford Road, already busy in our original image dating from the early 20th century.
Much has changed, but the massive clock tower still watches over the hundreds of people who pour into the city every day.
The trams that trundled along Oxford Road have been replaced by cars and buses, but the 217ft clock tower on the former Refuge building still looms in the background.
