Trafford Park Hotel, Trafford Park, Manchester
Trafford Park Hotel, Trafford Park, Manchester, taken 12 years ago
Following the construction of the Manchester Ship Canal in 1895, Trafford Park, the ancestral home of the de Trafford family since medieval times, was transformed into the World's first, planned, industrial estate. In among all the great factories that formed the industrial estate a "workers" village was built along American lines of a gridlike pattern of "Avenues" and "Streets". This hotel was opened for visitors in 1902, on the corner of Third Avenue and a road now known as Village Way.
