Whilst not strictly a New Bailey area photograph this image though was taken from the Quartz Building, The Slate Yard. Thus a photo of Manchester’s opposing towers kind of qualifies to be in my New Bailey ‘TinyProject’
The Beetham Tower is on the left and until the completion of the Deansgate Complex of towers, on the right, was the tallest tower both in Manchester and outside of London. Deansgate Complex South Tower when complete will take over that mantle.
Even from New Bailey one is very conscious of these towers and can not fail to miss them, as these structures impose themselves into the city’s skyline.
Of course none of the above images indicate or show any human aspect to these tower’s development. So, I have included the image below in order to at least record their direct impact, even from an albeit indirect geographical location, on everyday life and how soon we become inured their very presence.
