By Sarah Connell
Afflecks (formerly Affleck's Palace) is an indoor market in Manchester, England, in the city's Northern Quarter. The building was once home to Affleck & Brown, one of the city's principal department stores.
During the 1990s 'Madchester Summer of Love' period, when local bands such as the Stone Roses, Happy Mondays and Inspiral Carpets were at the height of their popularity, Affleck's Palace was a fashionable place to get oversized flared jeans and tie dyed T-shirts, and 'Eastern Bloc' was a popular record shop as it dealt in all the latest underground dance tunes.
