DONALD FAGEN BAND Live at Massey Hall, Toronto, Canada; March 13, 2006.
|Seen outside Manchester Library today. I thought it might be a new statue to mark the tomb of ' The Unknown Peodophile'?|
We caught the train & went into Manchester this afternoon.
Here are some photos from the afternoon. Mainly, we went to the Whitworth Art Gallery & later, Manchester Museum .
I must say,I was wasn't overly impressed with This new Whitworth.
It was OK.& it was a sunny walk there.....but ,It's just re-opened after a £15 million makeover.Loads of media hype.Frankly ,I dont get it.What's all the fuss about?
I went to the 'old' Whitworth in 2008 just before it closed.So i could compare old&new .I really cant see the purpose.
OK it's bigger& brighter.But it still isn't a patch on Manchester Art Gallery. For such a modern interior, the content seemed oddly old & tired....The only things i thought worth the visit was the Park(which was essentially there before) & the Sarah Lucas room entitled "tits in space" (see my pictures).Great.But bloody expensive tits.........
After The Whitworth we walked to Manchester Museum .Again, somewhere i hadn't visited for years. That was better ! Plus i got the chance to meet up with my old Cheshire mate Pete Marsh & his mummy......
After Manchester ,we met up with Chris & had An Italian in Hebden Bridge. A nice day.
