Had a walk around Manchester city and saw a few interesting old buildings. What I would’ve given for the 3Ts - tripod, tilt-shift lens and time to play.
When we got to the one that looked a bit churchy, we went inside for a peek. Turns out it’s full of books! The John Rylands Library is part of the University of Manchester, but it wasn’t always so. The story goes that after Lancashire lad John Rylands made a fortune in textiles and died a multi- millionaire at the ripe old age of 87, his rich wife bought some land, built a library, filled it with rare books and manuscripts, named it in honour of her husband and then gifted it to the city of Manchester. As you do.
