The images of Manchester in 1963 are part of the Town Hall Photographer’s Collection at Manchester City Council’s Central Library archives. Taken by staff photographers, the photos record the work of Corporation and Council departments.The subjects were typically roads, buildings and pavements. But we also see shops, people, billboards and cars. We get a feel for the city as it was.
