Angelic View /

Available as a poster print here.

At the top of Manchester Town Hall four angels look down upon the city.  Not included as part of Alfred Waterhouse’s original design, the angels were added after the clock tower, detailed on the original plans, was criticised by the judging panel who were to decide upon the new home for the city’s bureaucrats.

Stood atop the 87 metre structure these celestial overseers once occupied the tallest structure in the city, however, today their position is dwarfed by the surrounding developments of the 20th century, not least Beetham Tower.
