Of all the of Manc pics I found on here this one appealed to me the most. The chair on the wall is fantastic, reminded me of a recent walk in the woods in Chorlton where a hobo haven had been made, a set of ladders against a tree, a deck chair close by, a tyre in a tree and a for sale sign stuck in the gound. All things like this say home to me, I wouldn't have it any other way :D
Fantastic pic!!!

Why do you say that? To line up the 2 foremost archways? I never noticed before, but trying to look for what you meant.. i presume that was it?

Yeah. Pretty run-down place. Some excellent graff there though.

somethingKONST Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2005
Indeed.

Who showed you the place? I don't think its the real manchester.. It is the only place of its kind in manchester, there is literally nowhere else that bad anywhere.

The real manchester is full of white boys and hairdressers with Minis..

Cassie. I don't mean by it being the real manchester that that's is where everywhere else is like, just away from the REgen there is a place of Manchester generally forgotten, but representing a lot better what Manchester used to be. Old brickwork, arches etc. Not Urbis and skateboarders.
