From a hole in the ground on Oxford Street ........ today at noon

Now I never said the stories of the end of the Odeon would stop when the last brick wall had tumbled and nor did Andy Robertson.

So here is the continuing story ...... having demolished the walls, exposed the insides, Derek the Demolition man has started on the basements.

They will be the bits few of us will ever have visited and may have no secrets to reveal.

But you never know and so with that as a possibility I commend these two pictures to the cinema public to pour over and come up with anything of interest.

And that just leaves me to speculate on whether any one rescued a bit of the picture house.

I know readers of the blog have owned up to collecting bricks from many of our vanished iconic buildings.

All I can claim is one from Angel Meadow, another from a fine early 19th century house in Chorlton and a stone sett from outside our house.

Location; Manchester
