|I saw this for sale in Manchester Art Gallery's shop today. My Christmas Present for everybody this year?Maybe Donald Trump or Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon could make a campaign baseball cap with it?|
myself & Cathy went to Manchester Central Libary today (2nd november 2018) to see the plans for Jeremy Deller's Peterloo memorial. https://manchesterhistories.co.uk/projects/peterloo2019
What I saw looks good ,although its hard to tell just from a wee model.
The only doubt is the location between The Midland & G-Mex.
It will be built in that cordened-off area that ,during Tory Conferences, Boris goes jogging.
Maybe he will trip up on it?
No more news about my 'Moston Photos' http://everton.blogspot.com/2018/10/peterloo.html
.I guess it will all be under wraps until nearer the 200th anniversary next year?
All I have heard,so far, is that blown-up versions will be displayed in 5 locations throughout the city (billboards?!) i will be everywhere...like a rash.hopefully, [unless i end up on the cutting-room floor......]
|a photo i took of the artist Jeremy Deller a few years ago in Manchester Art Gallery.|
All my assorted photos from the last couple of weeks are here:
The only other things of note today,in Manchester.
I bought my first ever 'white poppy' in the Quakers Lodge in Manchester. Maybe, one fine day, the good people of Halifax, West Yorkshirewill build a monument to remember the six people murdered in the town by British Army sabres during the 'Plug Riots'
in Manchester Art Gallery , a young couple
stopped me on the stairs and asked if I minded having my photo taken for " a book about 50 men in Manchester"
. A black & white headshot....
All of a sudden, everybody wants to capture my image!
( winks ;) to Pulau Pinang)
