Then and Now
Chetham's School Of Music
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.
Medieval Chetham’s School forms our main image this week. The photograph, from 1900, was shot from the cathedral across Fennel Street.
The mullioned stone frontage of the school is overshadowed by buildings, now largely demolished, dating from the mid to late 1800s.
The hansom cabs, drawn up on the cobbles, evoke the turn-of-the-century atmosphere.
