City cliches?


Many people outside of Manchester might recognise the popular culture images on this construction site hoarding: Noel Gallagher of Oasis, Coronation Street tv soap opera, George Best of Manchester United, Morrisey of The Smiths, and the infamous Manchester rain (here as red raindrops on a pink background).

Perhaps less well known by outsiders would be the Beetham Tower, and the bee- a traditional symbol of industrious Manchester and its 19th century workers known as the "busy bees".

  3. Hi Chrissy,

    Just been looking over some of your photos - and I think they are great.

    I really should do something similar myself - maybe.

    Keep up the good work.
