Then and Now Take Two – Morton Laboratory Manchester

This is a regular series of blogs about photographs of the same place taken years apart. I quite like those Then and Now comparison photographs that you see in books or on the Twitter or Facebook.  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 was staying up in Manchester again. This time I was staying at the Macdonald Manchester Hotel. I had stayed at the hotel before in September 2015. Back then I had taken this photograph of the Morton Laboratory from my hotel room window.

So staying at the hotel again in September 2022 I took a similar photograph.

Not quite the same angle, as I was in a different hotel room and (probably) on a different floor.  The newer photograph was taken with an iPhone 13 which is better in low light conditions.
