Description Mother and children walk along deserted cobbled street

A scene of bleak desolation at Salford, Manchester, as a lone housewife pushing a pram, accompanied by her two young children walk along a cobbled street, cleared of the terraced houses which once lined it on either side. In the distance through the wet gloom and evening mist can be seen the new home for these cleared communities in high rise tower block flats. Photograph by Shirley Baker
