I’m joining in with this month’s Photo Scavenger Hunt after sorting out my photo’s from today’s day out in the Big City. The Big City of Manchester! Wil and I both have this week off work and as Wil wanted to buy a new shirt, we caught the train into our favourite Northern city. 🙂 Now when I’m looking for clothes it usually takes me the whole day to find something! Not so with Wil. He found his shirt within the first half hour. So we spent the rest of the day basically eating,drinking and admiring graffiti in the Northern Quarter. Here are the pictures……
Green ~ Our first pint of the day was in Mr Thomas’s Chop House on Deansgate. This is a Grade II listed building which first opened as a public house in 1870 and the inside is decorated with original Green Victorian tiles.
Two ~ Beautiful ladies adorning a wall in Manchester’s arty Northern Quarter.
Cool ~ More Cool graffiti in the Northern Quarter. Just walk round and immerse yourself. 🙂
Somewhere I Went ~ Here I am in the lovely Sugar Junction Tea Rooms on Tibb Street. The book has an interesting Gin Menu in it but i’m afraid I stuck to coffee….
Look Up and see the Tib Street Horn ~ a serpent like sculpture coiled round the remains of a Victorian building near Afflecks Palace.
Frame ~ Aw Can I frame this tiled Doggy that adorns the wall of the Black Dog Ballroom Bar also near Afflecks.
From a low angle ~ Photographed from the bottom of the stairs in Infamous Diner , a 1950’s style American Diner in the Northern Quarter.
On The Shelf ~ Plenty of choice at the Tib Street Tavern. 🙂
Writing ~ Iconic Sixth Day t-shirts ( first printed in 1988) are still Manchester’s favourite design and are sold at the Northern Quarter’s eclectic independent Boutique collection under one roof ~ Afflecks Palace .
Inside ~ We had lunch in this fab American Diner in the Northern Quarter. I’m sure It will appear again in another post. 🙂
Line ~ Tram Lines and bright yellow tram in the city centre.
Shape ~ Rectangular vintage luggage in Manchester’s Victoria Station Bar.
I thought I would leave you with a few more Graffiti images that we saw today. I’m sure there are many many more to discover. 🙂
