Manchester has a rich diversity of different architectural styles from Neo-Gothic and Victorian buildings that echo Manchester’s commercial and industrial past to the steel and glass edifices of the 21st Century, the latter in part due to the regeneration of the city centre following the bombing of 1996. There are many pockets of run down forlorn-looking buildings too, sometimes decorated with colourful graffiti. This gallery can only start to look at the variety of styles in what ought to be a continuing project (when I have time!)
