Given that I live just a little over 30 miles away in Liverpool, I really do not know Manchester city centre at all - apart from fleeting impressions from a couple of past visits. I decided to explore a little more widely today - but, of course, this still represented just a tiny portion of what Manchester has to offer. I hope, and intend, to explore Manchester in more detail and on many more occasions....

Three hours seems to be the optimum amount of time to spend exploring and photographing an unfamiliar city. I had decided that I definitely wanted to explore the Castlefield area a little today, as well as have a look around The Northern Quarter, and in particular Affleck's Palace- the 'alternative' department store. I arrived quite early at 10am; the weather was fairly mild but overcast - and the city was initially quiet and slow; the streets started to become busier around 12.30pm. I arrived and departed from Oxford Rd Station. The pictures are posted in the order in which they were taken:


I departed from Liverpool South Parkway station:





...and arrived at Oxford Rd station approximately 35 minutes later:
