The old industrial site on the corner of Pin Mill Brow and Great Ancoats Street was one of the last remaining factory complexes in this area, one of the first urban industrial districts in the world. Somehow, the ramshackle old brick buildings, slate roofs and a tall chimney remained untouched until very recently.  And then the inevitable happened. A few weeks after I took this photo on 7 July 2004, the site was empty and one of Manchester's last remaining chimneys from the industrial revolution era was gone.
