It's dusk and we are standing on Pollard Street Ancoats with bus and billboard advert. The left hand scene is from 20 Nov 1998, the right hand one, from a slightly narrower angle of view was taken 31 May 2005. Outwardly little has changed, apart from a new street light and a newer bus, but all around massive redevelopment is in progress. The green light on the upper facade of the old mill is part of the conversion of the building into apartments. Off to the right is the New Islington development. One small change - the billboard, now taken over by a different company, is slightly smaller and has three lights instead of four. Whether the reduction in ad size has any bearing on the value of this location, only a marketeer can answer.
