September 12th 1964:
So much for pop-star luxury! The Kinks camp out at the side of the road during their nationwide tour which included the New Century Hall at Manchester.
It looks like Ray Davies and his brother Dave are brewing a cup of tea rather than enjoying the champagne lifestyle.
Things were about to change as the Kinks had just released their breakthrough single You Really Got Me. It topped the UK charts for two weeks later in the month.
September 12th 1972:
Valencia manager and former Real Madrid legend Alfredo di Stefano puts his team through their paces before the UEFA Cup First Round clash with Manchester City at Maine Road.
Di Stefano’s tips paid off as Valencia drew the match 2-2 and won the second leg in Spain 2-1.
City’s goals at Maine Road came from Ian Mellor and Rodney Marsh, with Marsh scoring again in Valencia.
After going out of the UEFA Cup early in the season, City went on to finish 11th in the First Division under manager Malcolm Allison.
September 11th 1947:
Cars are parked in ranks on Mosley Street, Piccadilly, two years after the end of World War II. Lewis’s department store and arcade can clearly be seen in the background.
Motor car production geared up in 1945, but most of the models produced were 1942 designs as manufacturing had been diverted to support the war effort.
The first post-war design for American car giant General Motors was their 1949 line of automobiles.
