[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Although Stockport is my town of adoption, Manchester is where I was born and raised. Therefore, this is the first in a short series of pictures.

Manchester Town Hall

Becuase, for most purposes, filming is forbidden in the Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament, London), the Manchester Town Hall interior is frequently used as its "Body double" in British TV political dramatisations and Victorian costume dramas.

Completed by architect Alfred Waterhouse in 1877, it is a very fine example of Victorian Gothic revival, featuring imposing murals by Ford Madox Brown.

Note from Wikipedia with thanks.

Just sharpened and framed after re-sizing.

Hello Bill !

interesting post and note. The similitude is surprising indeed . I can understand the usefullness of the Manchester Townhouse. The City must be pretty happy about its own tower popularity too .

Well done !

Happy Easter !

Hi Bill,
Stockport has never been on my cards as as a place to visit until I saw this image. You have found a very interesting angle and used it in such as way as to fill the frame with some terrific detail. Nice work.
Best wishes,
