An interesting feature of the present wave of redevelopment is the tendency for comparatively new buildings to succumb to demolition.  St John's College buildings, subsequently part of MANCAT, were similar to many from the 1950s and 60s. Not as ancient as Chethams or as grand as the university, the building nevertheless figured prominently in many peoples' education, including mine: I took an evening class in A Level German here between 1974 and 1976. A new MANCAT campus has been built in Openshaw, but the college retains a presence here in a new building on Quay St.
