    I spent most of my time at college in the tall building in the background. I didn't look that flash back then, plus my lessons were mostly on the top floors and more often than not the lifts were broken :mad:

    Trying to figure the angle, is that 'Sandy bay caravan park' on the 'headland'?

    The buggers they find to choose the final one for the month tend to be crossed eyed and colour blind:p :thumbs:

    Hullard Park, Old Trafford:

    The 'pond' with the liner that leaked so it never completely filled, even after I personally helped to reline the pond with TCV in 2012:

    Tommys' fireplace shop on Stretford Road - I don't recall any Mancs posting this on here which is a big surprise considering how distinct it is:

    Finally some flowering trees back in Hullard Park:

    Went for a wander round town this afternoon, and while it was even busier than usual it felt different - more subdued, given what happened last Monday.

    Anyway, here are some pictures of new stuff in the Northern Quarter.

    St Anne's Square. A very sombre atmosphere, and everyone was very quiet and just taking it in. The atmosphere was almost church-like and emotional.

    Great photo's farmerbarleymow. Were you expecting what you came across in St Anne's Square? It must have been very moving to see all that for yourself.

    I expected it might have been like that - and it's a lovely collective tribute to those killed and injured in the attack.

    The bloke with the musical instrument was playing quite melancholy stuff which fitted the atmosphere perfectly.

    If I'm up early tomorrow I'll go down again before the crowds get there so I can get better pictures.
