Then and Now Take Three – Cabot Circus

This view of Cabot Circus was taken in April 2023.

This is a regular series of blogs about photographs of the same place taken years apart. The first of the posts in this series was of a council building in Manchester. I always thought I should give then and now photographs a go. However what I have started to notice is that I have been doing Then and Now photographs unintentionally over the years and have been taking photographs of the same thing or place from the same view or perspective years apart. Now this has come to my attention I have started to intentionally take photographs of the same place.

I have written a few times about how I have taken photographs of this view of Cabot Circus.

Going through some photographs recently I started to realise I had taken photographs of this view a lot more times than I thought I had.

This post outlines all the times I have taken this view (that I have found).

This photograph was taken not long after Cabot Circus had opened. The shopping centre had opened on 25th September 2008, this photograph was taken on the 21st October 2008.

Going through my collection I also had taken this similar photo on the 4th July 2016.

I took this photograph on December 8th 2019. I was on my way to do a pick up from the Vue Cinema, so I took a photograph of the festive Cabot Circus. I also wrote about it back then as well.

This newly found photograph shows the same view and was taken 19th November 2021.

Another newly found photograph of the same view, this from 9th July 2022.

This photograph was taken on the 26th November 2022.

This is a newly found photograph from the 10th December 2022.

So back to the top photograph, which was the most recent in April 2023.

Time to visit Cabot Circus again I think and take another photograph.


So I did… This photo was taken in June 2023.
