Fall 2015 : Manchester Walk

Our lecturer has arranged an interesting Manchester Industrial Walk. As the name suggests, we are going to WALK, around historical INDUSTRIAL area in MANCHESTER. 

Not many people turned up but it was fun anyway. It was a guided tour. We learned a lot about the history of Manchester and what happened at each building/street pre/post Industrial Revolution.

It was raining and really cold. We walked together in the rain for almost two hours, exploring the interesting [and dark side] of the Manchester industrial history.

Then, I just walked home. Another 30 minutes in the rain.
