Neil Roland - Gallery 14 Manchester Suburban Areas
I have photographed pretty well every suburban area of Manchester. Below
is a small selection of individual images of some of these suburbs in both
North and South Manchester. Multi section pictures of particular areas can be
created, or indeed pictures which bring together two or more suburbs and the
city centre in one picture. It is best to come to the gallery to see what is

Sun Before Thunder at Stretford
A huge thunder storm was about
to erupt over Chorlton, but the sun still shone with ominous brilliance over
Stretford, and no where more so than the gloriously art deco Longford Cinema
(later the Issoldo) on Chester Road. The pink and blue of its flaking paintwork
shone like on a film set, set off by the black sky behind. For more pictures of
Stretford and surrounds, please contact Neil on 07792 365 437.
Interior of this wonderful, cosy café

Prestwich: Heaton Park
The original Manchester Town Hall
Façade. Built in neo classical magnificence on King Street Manchester in
the 1820s, the original town hall was replaced by the present, Alfred
Waterhouse building in Albert Square in the 1870s - the façade, however,
was brough in 1912 to Heaton Park. Here, a detail of its Ionic columns is
shown. For more Prestwich pictures, please contact Neil through the site or by
Crumpsall Library Railings
The elegant old Library which
served Crumpsall stands on Cheetham Hill Road and is in a state of decay. This
picture shows its richly figured railings - but for how long it can remain like
this is anyones guess. For more pictures of Crumpsall, Cheetham Hill and
surrounds, contact Neil via the website or by phone.
The sensational Grade 11 listed Crumsall
Synagogue dates from 1927, and behind its simple, white façade, is a
gorgeous synagogue building with delicious stained glass and many features. I
have a large collection of pictures relating to Manchesters Jewish
community, with architectural details of synagogues, cemeteries and lots of
signs from popular streets and shops. Please contact Neil via the website or by
phone to see more at my studio.
is full of intricate details from the Victorian
and Edwardian era. New the Manchester Superstore, this ornate, barrel-vaulted
building is a hive of present day activity and bustling liveliness - but take a
look at the sheer beauty of the tiling.
Parish Church gates. The gates at All Saints,
Newton Heath are crumbling away, but their filigree elegance is still viewable
- the decay makes them particularly appealing.
