Lost and forgotten streets of Manchester .......... nu 79 Bradshaw Street

Now you wont find Bradshaw Street although if you are brave enough to stand in the bus lane beside the Metro stop at the Shudehill Interchange you will be close.

Once, and not that long ago Bradshaw Street ran from Shudehill across to Dantzic Street, and on a sunny day back in the 1980s John Casey wandered along and took this picture.

In the distance is ShudeHill with the Abergeldie cafe and the Lower Turks Head just visible.

I don't remember Bradshaw Street, more I suspect because I just took it for granted, and totally missed the opening of the metro stop on the First City Crossing in 2003 or for that matter the opening of the bus and coach station three years later.

All of which makes John's picture a treasure.

Location; Manchester

Picture; Bradshaw Street, 1980s from the collection of John Casey
