Withington Road Revealed

It took me a while to notice that 100 Withington Road, Whalley Range has had it's former co-op store signage revealed. It's above the windows in black and silver and has been hidden for nigh on 50 years. A typical 1920's Manchester & Salford Co-op building in Ravenshead Rustic brick with a green tile finish. A grocery store and a seperate butchers. The former co-op hall is above with a door on the left hand side.

More photograhs needed but in the meantime why not use Google Streetview to track down a few more. Let's hope that Streetview images will be archived because they will give a fairly comprehensive picture of a moment in time.
