We called it the Daily Express Building (it’s just the Express Building on the photo) and we used to pass it late at night (as Great Ancoats Street in Manchester was then on the direct route from Wrexham to Leeds, no M56 or M62) and we were on our way, in our Morris Traveller, to visit mum’s cousin in Leeds. Every time we went past the building mum and dad would point it out because, in those days and late at night, the building was lit up like Blackpool Illuminations and the printing presses were running, much of them visible through those wonderful glass walls-of-windows. It really was a sight to behold. Photo taken 4th Sept 2019 with some cropping and editing to remove traffic and huge advertising signs.
