Manchester Town Hall (love manchester, improve it!)
Manchester Town Hall (love manchester, improve it!)
Notice the sign! This captures Manchester perfectly with the grey sky. Completed in 1877, this impressive neo-Gothic building cost a million pounds. The monument was the civic pride of the city, reaching 286 feet above Albert Square below. Designed by architect Alfred Waterhouse, it was fitted onto an awkward triangular space. Manchester had achieved city status in 1853, and was keen to show off its civic dignity. Inside it is lavishly and richly decorated, with mosaic floors bearing the "bees", symbols of Manchester's industry, and has wall murals by Ford Madox Brown. Albert Square has a monument to Prince Albert as well as statues of Manchester's famous 19th century citizens.
