HRS 1128 Manchester, Salford Junction Canal, Elsan toilet in air raid shelter

The Manchester, Salford Junction Canal was opened in 1839 as a way of allowing coal traffic from the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal access to the canal network via the Rochdale Canal. The canal with its long tunnel under Manchester's street was built to avoid carting goods across Manchester to the Rochdale Canal. Later a link canal was opened at Hulme and the remarkable MSJc canal became a white elephant. Photo: An unusual survival from the second world war is this Elsan chemical toilet found in the former air-raid shelter in upper part of the tunnel near Deansgate. 1973
