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 main image shows the massive hole that unexpectedly opened up on the A464 at Harpurhey on a quiet Sunday in January 1969.
Fortunately, few cars were on the busy Manchester to Rochdale road when the 40ft stretch of tarmac caved in so no-one was hurt.
Engineers were quickly on the scene of the subsidence which may have been caused by heavy rain.
