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.

As we have been focusing on Street Photography with the finale being the Terry Mooney Set Subject competition - Street Photography, I thought this may be of interest to members. I took the bus to the Manchester Art Gallery the bus now stops almost out on Monday. Images by Shirley Baker were being exhibited, of life in the 1960s & 70s. The time period being around the time lots of demolition took place in Manchester and Salford to make way for new housing & apartments. After seeing the images you can really compare life then with today. The exhibition is well worth seeing.
