I had to cross reference the Old trafford one because ive got a very similiar picture on file so eventually worked it out but the rest were a piece of doddle.
May devise my own version just to **** you all off with my encyclopedic knowledge!

Cross reference. What's that about Mr L?

We await the ultimate Mancunian test. :)

I have a pretty big file of images of my own, of local 'landmarks'. It was just a question of going through the 'usual suspects' until my memory was jogged.

We await the ultimate Mancunian test.
Could be fun but it'll take a bit of photoshopping and time but it will be devilishly hard!

Must try harder!
See me at the end!

A bowl of soup but no soft white bread so had to do with horrible brown bread with bits in it that my missus insists on buying given half a chance. Was still hungry so had a pitta with cheese and then a quarter of a tube of Pringles. Then stole one of the missus's Kelloggs Nutrigrain bars which are horrible put wanted something sweet. A glass of Summer Fruits Robinsons Squash.
Well - you did ask!

Stop right there.

Hungry? Buy the missus a nice set of pans and a new pinny for her next birthday and she might just get the message.

7/15 - can't believe I didn't get the first one! I must study up some on some of the current buildings.

Question 10's answer made me laugh - completely caught me out anyway.

I think you are right apart from 11 which is the Reynold building. I only got 9 on Aidan's quiz. :(
