Situated in a suburb of Manchester, England this is a story of a co-op store still with meeting rooms above the shop, and the lane itself. Plus other related or not so related history.

The photograph is dated August 1975 and shews a tree lined Hardy Lane being the wide cul-de-sac that it is. You have to thank Mr. A. Dawson who took his camera around Manchester in the 1970's taking snaps of ordinary buildings and streets. Even when you do this today you catch some strange looks off passers-by, and maybe he got some odd looks too.
At present we can't go and recreate this scene because of the roadworks blocking Hardy Lane, see the previous post.
