I had parked my car just outside the old Strangeways Prison and was walking into the centre of Manchester from its poorer relation of Salford (although it aspires to be much more).
It was a fine winters morning and I took out my camera and began taking photographs as I was walking………..across the roof tops and along the dark and unpleasant looking River Irwell.
The city is one of architectural contrasts with some wonderful 19th century buildings alongside some less than wonderful 20th century buildings. It is possible to look across the city and see the cathedral and a little further on the recently opened Hilton Hotel, which I belive is now the tallest building in the city………..debate still rages about its “aesthetic” quality.
If you visit the city just keep looking up and you will see some wonderful buildings………..
