Pilkington's Tile Factory started making Vases in the 1903 at Clifton Junction. Manchester They managed to get some of the best artiste in the country like Walter Crane. The terrific designs and the Lustre Glazes produced some of the Most Ornate Pottery in the world. Even Tiffany's of New York sold them.

This Kingfisher was a Surprise.I photographed this Bird in the middle of Manchester, just across the road from Granada Studios where Coronation Street is Filmed. The River Irwell runs through Manchester just by the Studio's. This shows that the "Irwell" is now clean and supports Fish. It used to be one of the most polluted rivers in Britain. Due to all the Cotton Mills around Manchester. (That's Got to be Good.)

In the middle of High Rise Manchester's Buildings lies, The Old Wellington Inn together with Sinclair's Oyster Bar, they use to be in Shambles Square. They were moved from the Medieval Street below in 1925. Then had to be moved again as result of the I R A Bomb Blast in 1989, to their Current Position. Both Buildings are said to be Circa 16th Century.

This man Stands and Pretends to be a Statue. He is dressed in black with gold paint all over him. He doesn't move for a long time. If you put money in his hat he will smile. The children think that he is wonderful. I have yet to work out how he doesn't fall over? LOL.
