Get up, stand up for your rights: Marley in Manchester

Bob Marley played Manchester four times: in May and November 1973, then at the Hard Rock in July 1975 and at Belle Vue on this day, 27 June, in 1976. This contemporary artwork is in a private garden near St George's Island in Cornbrook.

"...Get up, stand up!
Stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up!
Don't give up the fight!..."

Bob Marley, Peter Tosh


  1. What a find!
    Sometimes I get so tired, I forget.
    Thanks for the reminder!

    Happy Monday!

  2. Nicely composed shot today.

  3. Privately owned art, yet visible to the public. a nice compromise. It's jammin'.

    BTW, Oakland's main old street is called Broadway and we do have a flat iron building. So, not NYC, but Oaktown all the way!

  4. Jack:- I just had to take the shot through some horizontal railings so I was very limited- just point and shoot- thanks!

    Oakland DP: Good to hear the Flatiron and Broadway are your own- that's the beauty of CDP, we all learn so much about places that deserve more global media attention / higher profile than they get. So we do it for them!
