Manchester's Green Quarter

From the mid-nineteenth century, the area, then known as Red Bank,[1] was a slum housing impoverished Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, but is now home to digital start-ups and e-commerce businesses, new apartments, microbreweries, gin distilleries and restaurants.[2]
