Superb images ,it shows how times change and not only the areas ,can you imagine someone walking around taking pictures of young children nowadays I think the police would be round pretty sharpish, innocence and slums gone.

Went to the exhibition today. Lots of people there, some great photographs, mainly black and white, of Manchester and Salford in the 60's. Worth a visit for anyone who grew up during this period or interested in how Manchester was.
