The Mancorialist is our cafe window to the city that shows off Manchester’s more alternative and diverse characters in all their many guises. We’re pleased to announce that we will be collaborating with The Mancorialist by exhibiting our favourite photos taken by them at the end of every month.

As a formal introduction we’ve picked a selection of  ‘retrospective’ photos from their archive of 4,000, that spans seven years documenting our streets; from the very first photo taken in 2012 through to the present day. Enjoy…
