Manchester Town Hall

Interesting
This Revival gothic style town hall was built between 1868 and 1877 by Alfred Waterhouse. Its tower on the top octagonal floor rises 87m above the pedestrian area of Albert Square. Two staircases run from the lower arched entrance to the main hall which boasts a concave ceiling decorated with twelve Pre-raphaelite frescos by Ford Madox Brown which retrace the history of Manchester.
