Campaign for Ian Curtis Memorial Bridge in Hulme, Manchester- time to rename the iconic bridge from JD photos

The famous bridge in Hulme which featured in Kevin Cummins iconic shots of Joy Division standing in the snow is the backdrop to one of the most famous photos in rock music.

 

The bridge is still there – intact I can see it from the window of my flat but Manchestef council seem remarkably reluctant to rename it the Ian Curtis bridge- leaving it without ┬áname.

 

In a ┬ácity full of musical heritage it would be great to name the bridge after the singer and stick a blue plaque on it- peope’s history has value as well..

 

There is campaign for this to happen being run from this Facebook page

  1. I thought Anton Corbijn took this photograph? No mention of him anywhere….erm…

  2. It is only fit that Ian be honoured as on of the city’s greatest songwriters who’s music has touched many and stood the test of time. The real sadness being that he is not alive to be making music today.

    I would consider it an honour to live in a city with a bridge named after as inspiring and talented an artist as Ian Curtis
