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, dating from 1930, shows a stretch of Oxford Road that will be well known to Manchester students past and present.
Ackers Street is on the left and the gates of the Holy Name Church are just visible. The spire of Manchester Royal Infirmary can be seen in the distance.
