This piece reveals so much of, and about, Manchester. Along Great Ancoats Street, passing a number of early and mid-Victorian cotton mills converted to trendy Northern Quarter apartments and offices. With the iconic, black glass facade of the Daily Express Building to the far right, built in 1939 and designed by Sir Owen Williams to house one of three Daily Express offices. The puddle reflecting the swirling blue sky above as the traffic relentlessly rolls past into the rhythm of the day.
