Salvation Army Social Services Centre

This set of photos is from inside the Sally Army SSC, on Wilmott Street, which is due to be closed on 12th December 2012 and ultimately demolished. It’s not a particularly lovely building but it was a purpose built place for homeless people, opened on May 12th 1978 by General Arnold Brown and has no doubt served a valuable function in the city. Some of my photos show the removal of the inaugural plaque. The services are now to be relocated in three areas of Manchester. What the city council will do with the site remains to be seen.
