I love this photo, which is mentioned in the Morrissey autobiography. He says his friend lived in the block of modern flats she is in, "at the junction of Cornbrook street and Chorlton Road, where Moss Side creeps up on Old Trafford." Photo is of the character Ena Sharples from Coronation Street, which I've never seen. But it shows the sort of old 19th century dwellings and a factory, and she is in a post-'slum clearance' new building. From http://coronationstreetupdates.blogspot.co.uk/
