We are pleased to announce a new publication Stretford House and a short exhibition at our Manchester gallery to coincide with its release.

Stretford House is a collaboration between Stretford Local History Society and Manchester Modernist Society to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Stretford House, the 23 storey high-rise residential housing block which is situated at the junction of Chester Road and Barton Road in Stretford Manchester.

It is dedicated to all the original tenants of Stretford House, who like the 1960's astronauts were brave enough to venture into the unknown territory of high-rise living.

Full colour A5 photobook (44 pages) - available here or call in to our Manchester shop.

To celebrate this release we are holding a short exhibition at our Manchester gallery showing some of the images from the book. The exhibition will be on from Wednesday 14th June until July 13th. We are open Wednesday through Saturday 11am until 5pm.
