Regeneration Manchester: 30 Years of Storytelling
‘A treasure trove exploring Manchester’s regeneration – telling stories and sharing the tales of the city. Brilliant. This is my kind of book.’ Neil McInnes OBE, Head of Libraries, Galleries and Culture, Manchester City Council
The back cover blurbs says it all:
'For 30 years Len Grant has documented the changing face of Manchester and Salford. Through his photography, writing and, most recently, his sketches, he’s told stories of significant regeneration projects, from the construction of The Bridgewater Hall and The Lowry, to the beginnings of Mayfield’s revival.
His extensive archive includes the neighbourhood renewal of Hulme, east Manchester and the creation of New Islington. His diverse storytelling extends from showcasing the heroic to giving voice to the most vulnerable.
In over 25 books and exhibitions, Len has told the story of a city shrugging off its industrial past and embracing an industrious future. Now, in Regeneration Manchester, he brings it all together in one volume. This is his story of three decades of creativity.'

‘It’s a thing of beauty and depth and humour and soul.’

‘What stands out is Len’s love for the city and its people.’
