Manchester UK 2004

Manchester UK 2004

These #photographs are from Manchester in the UK and they were captured on the 9th to the 11th of May 2004.

Manchester, in 2004 at least, really was a great place to visit and in many ways there is much more to see and do, without the hustle, bustle and grime that one gets in London.

As these photographs attest, the old world architecture, built around the complex canal system, really is elegant and beautiful. The buildings do remind one of Amsterdam which suggests a common link perhaps, But, Hammers and Chisels, tho right?

The Museum was really worth a visit along with the Manchester Cathedral with it's gargoyles and stained glass windows that had to be replaced "due to WW2". For searchers of the Old World, the beautiful stained glass windows of St Ann's Church are very thought provoking.

James stayed in Monroe's which was a very charming, quirky establishment that was a shrine to Marilyn. It's now Piccadilly Central and then as now is close and handy to the City Centre and the train station is across the road!

The Galleries Above, contains a selection of previously unpublished curated camera proofs for narrative context. We've included some sharpened images that we normally wouldn't publish because we think they are of value to seekers of the old world!
