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.

The River Mersey begins at the confluence of the Tame and the Goyt in Stockport town centre, some 6 miles (10km) south of Manchester city centre. A B&Q lorry passes on the M60 overhead. Above the scene are the refurbished council flats on Lancashire Hill.

This photo was used in the M60 book.

The River Mersey, Merseyside and Merseybeat have come to be synonymous with Liverpool and conurbation. But the Mersey begins in Stockport, 6 miles (10km) south east of Manchester, some 35 miles (50km) east of Liverpool. I have a map of Liverpool and Manchester from the 1950s entitled 'Merseyside'.
