11 nostalgic pictures showing how Manchester city centre streets have changed over the last century
These striking pictures show how the likes of St Ann’s Square and Deansgate have evolved over the last 100 years.
Manchester’s skyline is forever changing, whether it’s a new skyscraper being built or an old building being razed to the ground.
