Looking down the line towards Piccadilly. In the background is the grade II listed LinkExternal link former Refuge Assurance Building built by Alfred Waterhouse in 1891.

The insurance company moved out in 1987 and the building lay empty until 1996 when it was concerted into the Palace Hotel until being rebranced in 2016 as Principal Manchester. LinkExternal link

The original Oxford Road station was opened in 1849 by the Manchester South Junction and Altrincham Railway. The station was completely rebuilt in 1874, again in 1903/4 and then in 1960 the old station was replaced by the present one.
