The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Odd corner

Here we have an odd corner of a very ornate and Victorian building - Manchester Town Hall.

Very imposing - it was built in the time cotton was king and the city had new wealth.  The building was a symbol of the city's wealth and industry.

it is a very impressive structure - the wealth of cotton is now over, but some things stay to remind us of the glorious past

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
