I dropped in to Manchester Art Gallery yesterday because it’s been a while (and to avoid the rain). Tucked away in one of the smaller galleries were a few posters from the Empire Marketing Board dating back to the twenties and thirties, and they were rather gorgeous. Clean and well designed, they did their job very well. The one above struck me as particularly lovely. If you’re feeling generous you can buy me a print of it.
I recently moved to the eastern side of Manchester, and have found myself in Ashton quite often in the last few months. The town has some interesting buildings and has rekindled my interest in taking photos of architecture.
The day I chose to take my first wander had one of those Mancunian overcasts where my camera registers the sky as a featureless pale grey. So no brooding clouds behind any of the buildings in this set. Sorry.
