The history of this great city!

Final photo I have of the tiles by Aflecks Palce for now, includes the iconic G logo used by Granada Televison (now ITV Granada), BBC ONE's Top Of The Pops which first aired from a converted church in Rusholme and London's Sex Pistols.

 

Punk music was banned by the TV stations including ITV......except Granada of course, which had a programme in 1976-77 called So It Goes, presented by Tony Wilson.....god bless his soul....and was the only region in the UK that showcased the burgeoning punk rock scene.

 

Hence, in the words of the late Tony Wilson "This is Manchester, we do things differently here"
