1982: The Haçienda Opens

12 of 12 shots of the Haçienda timeline along the underground car park of the iconic nightclub and now appartments that I took on Saturday 7th July 2012 whilst alongside the Rochdale Canal.

 

Final shot of the Haçienda timeline.....for now!

 

May 21st, 1982 was when the iconic nightclub opened it's doors to the public.

 

The late, politically incorrect comedian Bernard Manning made a controversial remark to the club's owners (Peter Hook, the late Rob Gretton and the late Tony Wilson).

 

His "put-down" remark was:

 

"You’ve never run a club before, have you? F***ing stick to your day jobs lads”
