    Hi all,

    I'm visiting Manchester by the end of the month, any ideas or suggestions of a place(s) to buy mainly B&W 120 film?

    On the other hand, any industrial sites, breweries, railroad machinery etc you would suggest as subject matter?


    Cheers!

    Hi

    Your best bet is probably PFD, Unit 1, Business Park, Ardwick Green, Manchester,
    M12 4AH, 01612733003. Give them a call to see if they have what you want. Calumet is not far away from PFD so can try both. As to subject matter you will find Manchester has been greatly changed in the last decade or so; it is trying to shake off the old mill syndrome. I would suggest you try to capture an outsider's view of the new Manchester.

    Mather's of Lancashire is worth a visit. it is in Bolton which to an outsider like you is indistinguishable from Manchester.
