Description

Album of 117 pages containing 117 photographic prints of Baguley Hall, described by Pevsner as the best medieval secular building within Manchester. Included are two modern reproductions of early views of the hall (c.1900 and c.1930s). The remainder are two separate sets of record photography showing the site prior to and during renovations of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The earlier set were commissioned by the Ministry of Public Buildings and Works who took over the derelict site from Manchester Corporation in the late 1960s. The later set shows renovation works underway by the Department of the Environment in the early 1970s.
