Manchester Oxford Road looking towards St Peters Sq 2006

View north along Oxford Manchester looking towards St Peters Square and the Central Library. Coming towards us is a number 250 bus to the Trafford Centre operated by Stagecoach. This photo was captured 22 October 2006

Oxford Rd 1997
This exact view in 1997.

Some interesting changes have taken place in the nine years and four months that divide these two photos. The Central Library has been cleaned, new street lights have replaced the old ones, Walls and Bee Line buses have gone, and on the concrete railway bridge, built late 50s, green shrouding has appeared. Though much has changed all around, this view looks substantially the same as it was.
