thank you Eduard! visited once the Quays 5-6 years ago and now was really surprised how beautiful this waterfront is. here is a great place for a full day out. museums, shops, waterfront, theatre and lots of places to eat/drink, lots of quirky and interesting architecture, with plenty of photo opportunities.Guess we all here agree with this thinking: thank you for bringing these splendid photographs, I enjoy very much these different stones on the walls of historic landmarks, as enjoyed this huge atrium in the building of modern Manchester
