Lunch with Bert...
Lunch on the steps of the Albert Memorial on Albert Square. This is named after Queen Victoria's first cousin and husband Francis Albert Augustus Charles Emmanuel of Saxe-Coburg, who died at the age of 42 in 1861.
Manchester's Albert Memorial, completed in 1865, was the first of several Albert Memorials around the UK and is similar to the one in London, which was completed seven years after this Mancunian monument.
