Aaben Cinema
Photos for Hulme/ Carnival time. Got a lot of black and white pics like this which I took while doing a short photography course at the Hulme activity centre on Clopton Walk and run by a lad called Andy as I recall This one looking across St. Wilfs school (a young Morrisey's stomping ground), towards Salford. The Aaben Cinema would be in the thick of this housing just behind that large old building in the centre of pic. Guesstimating '85...
In the T.S.B. bank in the Moss Side centre they had these fantastic floor to ceiling black and white aerial shots of the whole area on every wall, probably taken round '74 when the old swimming baths near the Bonsall St. bridge were still standing.It certainly made queueing less of a chore. Hopefully somebody salvaged them before it was all pulled down...
