I really like this postcard. It's an area that I knew very well 35 years ago, as I worked quite close by. We used to sometimes have a pie and a pint in the Bastwell Hotel, on a Friday lunchtime (our pay day). Most of the properties in this photograph, are still standing. We have Plane Street off to the right (click the photo to expand it) and Whalley Range to the left. Today, it is still a busy crossroads, but now has traffic lights and parked cars there, to spoil the view.
