From pints and cocktails to divan beds and designer saucepans ............ down at the Throstles Nest

Never let it be said that in the full pursuit of recording our changing landscape Andy Robertson ever gives up on a building.

Regular readers will know that he has been engaged in a long term project of chronicling many of our old pubs, warehouses and factories just as they are about to disappear.

It has taken him out across Greater Manchester in all weathers and sometimes to the same spot several times in a year.

And here are two of his pictures showing the transformation of the Throstles Nest on Seymour Grove.
