Manchester Central Library details

Taken on the opposite side of Peter’s Street whilst stood on outside the corner of the Midland Hotel the above photograph shows an archway detail and lights shinning through the window. It was taken on a dull afternoon last week and I feel that the very centre part of this image was designed to have some sort of statue placed in it. This area of the picture might be difficult to see unless you click above to see an enlarged version but there certainly looks to be an empty alcove. I am looking forward to one day venturing inside this much photographed building to take some interior images. The library was only completed in 1934 and my grandfather tells me that he remembers it opening when he was a boy. According to a recent Channel M video I watched online there are great views over the city and down Oxford Road from the roof of the library.
