What a lovely photo. Have a look at genuki for some modern day photos, http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/LAN/Kirkmanshulme/
Maybe this will help? A list of Longsight churches quickly taken from my trusty copy of 'Longsight Past & Present' by Gay Sussex. Might jog someone's memory.

St Josephs RC Church, Plymouth Grove, opened in 1915. (site originally housed the St Josephs Technical School Chapel)
St Roberts RC Church, Hamilton Rd. The current church was built in 1970 but an earlier building was there before it.
Re-organised Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Beresford Rd. Opened in 1923.
No mention in the book of Bethshan Tabernacle, Slade Hall Grove, but I would guess by its architecture that Bethshan was built later than this photo.
If anyone knows about ecclesiastical robes, could help to identify the denomination of the vicar, if not the man himself? I used to go to North Rd Methodist Sunday school & I don't recall the ministers wearing full robes like this, but maybe they did for weddings.
