more messing around on google earth with old Manchester maps and protest sites

Boddington's brewery with first ed OS map overlay

St Peter's Square, with 19th C processions and meetings. Didn't realise that Google Earth have 3d models of the trams.

Mancunian Way before and after - I love the way that Green's map of Manchester (1794) shows the Chorlton Hall estate on the eve of demolition, still surrounded by fields but with the roads laid out for development.
