RAINY DAY PEOPLE

Autumn 1978


A nice gallery from Roger Barton :

One day sometime in late Autumn 1978 I took a few pics mostly from around the Central Library. It was one of those wet days and for some reason everybody I met that day was in a good mood. It summed up something about Manchester - quite what I am not sure….but if nothing else its a memory of a very particular Manchester late afternoon.
