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.
Three different types of transport are pictured alongside each other in our main image of Piccadilly in 1915.
First in line and partly obscured, is a trolley-bus. It was, quite simply, a double-decker run on electricity through trolley poles.
An environmental dream, the trolley-bus was quiet, fume-free and more flexible in traffic than a tram. It could also accelerate like a sports car and stop on a sixpence!
