Cold-War History in Manchester
The Guardian Underground Telephone Exchange

The following pictures were taken inside the Guardian Underground Telephone Exchange under Manchester city centre. I apologise for their poor quality. I don't know when these pictures were taken.

THESE PICTURES ARE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MANCHESTER CIVIC SOCIETY AND WERE NOT TAKEN DURING THEIR VISIT TO THE EXCHANGE.
