The Manchester suburb of Hulme is a case study
in the successes and failures of urban development. Three Hulmes
have existed within the space of a generation. The first a legacy of the
19th century, the second a product of 1960's planning, the third a
showcase of contemporary architecture, learning from the mistakes
of the past. In this photo we see one of the notorious deck
access flats which were finally demolished around 1997. The
infamous Hulme Crescents had already gone by the mid 1990s.
