Manchester City Hall.

Just joined the forum after stumbling across it whilst searching Architecture on the net. My main interest is Historical Buildings, and here's some shots of City Hall on a recent trip to Manchester. Some of the Architecture in here is simply stunning, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.

Very reminiscent of the Toronto city hall; clock tower and all.

The city hall is beautiful inside and out, your photos capture it well, note the city emblem, the industrious bee, on the mosaic floor

[Shameless self-promotion]For more photos of this and other great buildings in Manchester click the link in my signature[/Shameless self-promotion]

(and leave a comment, it hasn't been bumped in ages! )
