Lost and forgotten streets of Salford ........... nu 57 looking across at Greengate ...... from Bearings to high rise

Now if I hadn’t given the game away in the title, there may be may who would find it hard to place this new development which thrusts up into the sky.

2017

1980
But then I have already offered up the location and the rest as they say will be a flood of memories from many who long ago left Salford.

When I last wrote about the spot there were plenty who commented on the shops and more than a few who remembered that bus stop.

For some it was where they caught the bus home after a day at work and for a few it was the staring point for a night out.

2017
And I am hoping that these pictures will produce more than a few more stories.
