Well, there were also sunny or, at least dry spells ... - And I planned indoor activities, too. Not only pubs and restaurants , but there is the MOSI, the Art Gallery, the Labour Movement Museum, and railway stations.Lovely British weather!
Thank you for your friendly comment!I like the first and last images - classic British industrial town stuff.
Well, I found Manchester fascinating, with its rough charm of early industrial architecture. Worth visiting! ---Interesting set and not at all matching my preconceptions of Manchester ... well except for the rain
Thank you for your friendly comment, Alf.Thats a nice set Immo
I have not been in the city for a while as my daughter moved to the suburbs but I need t o have a walk on my own again
Hi, a few of my friends had difficulties understanding why I went to Manchester twice, too..It’s funny how someonelses opinion and view on places are different to your own, I hate manchester, it’s a noisy mess at times and avoid it whenever I can, that said, I doubt I have even looked around the place, yet know where every single image was taken, funny old world.
Hi, thank you for your friendly interest. If I lived near Manchester, I would go there quite often. I visited only the sites in walking distance from the city centre.Hi @justpix just been looking through the thread of photos, I found it pretty interesting. I have not been to Manchester for ages, and I can't think why not really, as it is only down the road from me. Maybe I should pop into the City with my camera, and see what I can spot.
Thanks for an interesting thread, with some nice photos.
Some lovely photos you have again.Hi, thank you for your friendly interest. If I lived near Manchester, I would go there quite often. I visited only the sites in walking distance from the city centre.
Interesting, unrenovated industrial sites I did not see. - But, this is just another reason for going there again ... ---
Manchester Cathedral (I was not the only visitor ...) :

Hi, I think, personalities change over the years. There is a town I lived in for over 25 years. And when I go there every now and then to look after my parents' grave, I always "discover" something new.Some lovely photos you have again.
I took some photos inside the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral a few years back. I grew up down the road from the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, and when I went out of our front door, I saw the Cathedral every day. I never gave it a second thought, as it was always there, and I obviously saw it as a toddler. I only ever thought to photograph the building when I was middle aged.
I will try and make more of an effort to get some photos of places where I grew up, and remember fondly as a child. Trouble is, most of the old areas have now changed greatly. I may take some more Cathedral photos, if I have the energy that is.Hi, I think, personalities change over the years. There is a town I lived in for over 25 years.

The same applies to poems, books or films you reappreciate after 20 years. Getting more mature can have its benefits ... ---
Walking on through Manchester from the cathedral...
Thank you for your friendly interest! - I did not go to the historical sites of the 60s music scene. Something for a future trip, and going to Liverpool, too ... ---Just before the lock down i went to Manchester for a couple of days - I hadn't been for probably 25 years ?
I've always like Manchester due to the music scene i.e The Smiths, The Stone Roses, Joy Division etc but I was really impressed by what a great City its become.
(Apart from the awful football teams)
I will be going back when this is all over - thanks for the photos
