Aidan O'RourkeTutor Aidan O’Rourke has built up a wide range of experience in both film and digital photography. He first became interested in photography in 1981. Since 1996 he has documented Manchester and Liverpool in photos and words. He has taken the 'now' photos for Manchester Then and Now, Manchester United Then and Now and Liverpool Then and Now (Anova Books). 107 of his photos are featured in the book Rebuilding Manchester by Euan Kellie. He wrote the Q&A pages for the first 27 issues of Digital Camera Magazine. From July 2008 to April 2009, his gigantic Manchester Mega-Photo was displayed in the foyer at Manchester’s Urbis Museum. He is based in Stockport and covers Manchester, Liverpool and northern England.
Morrisons supermarket signs Cheadle Heath Stockport

Signs at the Morrisons supermarket and petrol station, Cheadle Heath, Stockport. On the left is the old Morrisons sign and on the right, the redesigned one. The price of petrol on 11 February 2008 is 102.9 pence per litre or £4.68 per gallon. City diesel is 107.9 pence per litre or £4.91 per gallon. The supermarket is built on the site of Cheadle Heath Station, which features in my short film 'Encounter Out Of Time'.

Why did I take this photo? From time to time I like to capture the current price of petrol as seen on a petrol station forecourt. I also wanted to take a copy of the old and new Morrisons signs before the old one is phased out. I prefer the old one as it bolder and more eye-catching than the new one.
