Backs of Tenements, Oldham Road

Description

This photo shows the backs of row houses in Ancoats in 1898. The smoke in the air is clearly present and the street itself does not look paved but instead simply full of rocks. The image is a bleak portrayal of the infrastructure of Manchester in the late Victorian period.
