A tram is passing on its way to Aytoun St and Piccadilly Gardens. The red brick building is the Minshull Street Courts. City Tower, former Sunley Tower Piccadilly Plaza is on the right, and Portland Tower, former SWF Buidling is centre left. This is a last glimpse of one of the best views of Manchester, about to be blocked by the Piccadilly Place development.
