Mancunian Brutalism

Not a Photo, but a painting on which there was a thread in the forums.

It is based on a photo from 1967 showing Mancunian Way�the A57(M) and the surrounding effect of the brutalist architecture that scarred many cities at the time...

M60 j26 Bredbury interchange

It's been a while since we've had a night (or even dusk) shot. Here's one taken over a couple of minutes last month, and blended together from 10 or 20 pictures.

Note that it has thumbnailed poorly - it's better at a reasonable size.

Old Manchester 4. City Centre 2

A few things on here. All of the 'old' part of the Mancunian Way is complete, but it seams that the 'unfinished' slip is complete and connects with Brook St. Princess Road (A5103) doesn't yet meet it's Mancunian Way Junction, it also seams to have some sort of connector with Moss Lane planned? No Chester Road Flyover (the old Iron one) installed yet ether. Originally uploaded to Coppermine on Apr 04, 2005 by Mediaman_12

A57(M) - Coppermine - 10887.jpg
A57(M)

The comedians of Mancherster City Council attempt to hide the slip-road that never was by placing a huge M-way sign at where the A57(M) was to slip into Manchester City Centre but due to the one-way system in operation had to be aborted - a classic tale of slip-road tomfoolery.

Old Manchester 3. City Centre 1

Manchester City Centre. Before the Arndale was built. The A6 comes up Piccadily, along Market St. & St Marys Gate, but Blackfriars St. does not have the heavy outline of a 'main' road, Where to now? Did it multiplex up Deansgate for a while?
