Then and Now

Tib Street

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 we feature a scene from what was once described as Manchester’s pet shop paradise – Tib Street in the Northern Quarter.

It was said you could buy anything from a goldfish to a monkey from the street’s numerous pet shops which were always buzzing with activity.

On this day in 1984, the Cavern Club, Liverpool reopened its doors, keeping some of the brickwork and structure of the original building. Most commonly associated with The Beatles, many artists have played at the venue including The Who, Rolling Stones and Stevie Wonder.

Pictured are a couple dancing on the original opening night from January 1957. Do you have any memories from the venue?

This is complete and utter bullsh*t. The theme pub which opened in 1984 calling itself 'The Cavern' has nothing to do with The Cavern apart from it being on the same side of Mathew Street. It is scandalous to infer that any part of the 1984 theme pub called 'The Cavern, shares any part of the original iconic venue when at most ... at most it allegedly shares only a tiny part of a dividing wall between the 1984 excavations for the theme pub and the demolished infilled space where The Beatles played. I played at the Cavern theme pub in 1984 and my father, who visited the original venue countless times, came along. He just laughed at the notion that it was part of the original venue.

#OnThisDay in 1984; the Cavern Club #Liverpool, reopened its doors, keeping some of the brickwork and structure of the original building. Famously linked with The Beatles, many acts have played at the venue.

Castle Irwell, Manchester’s Salford Lost Racecourse. 1902 - 1963 officially, though dates back to the 1800’s.
Amazing film footage too from early 1900’s.
