I wish Market Street could be devoid of all trace of Arndale Centre. Can someone fix that for me?

Postcard view of Market Street, Manchester, UK, circa 1905

This animated Edwardian scene is now unrecognisable - all of the buildings here have gone. The Arndale Centre today occupies this one-time street prospect.The camera is aimed along Market St, with Piccadilly a short distance away behind the photographer. The tram track curving off to the right, continues along High St (out of frame), as does today's Metrolink.

Postcard view of Market Street from St Mary's Gate, Manchester, UK, mailed August 1912

The tower in the distance is that of the Royal Exchange. The dark elevation, just in frame on the left, was one side of the triangular Victoria Buildings. These were partly occupied by the Victoria Hotel. The edifice was destroyed by bombing during the Second World War.
