Click on the link below and then scroll around the picture to see a fascinating panorama of Ordsall in the 1960s, just before wholesale demolition of the area began. Spot Mount Carmel Senior School and the very old school. Mount Carmel Junior and Infants School building on Sussex Street. If you zoom in, you can see surviving (and thriving) landmarks such as St.Joseph's Church - as well as others now long gone - St.Bartholomew's CE Church, Trafford Road School, the Grain Elevator, old Old Trafford stadium and Ordsall Board School (which was a stunning  Victorian 1870 Board school building) and many more.

Thanks to Leslie Holmes of Salford Community Arts for this great picture.
