EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in the construction of Manchester Central Public Library. Taken during the 1930s, it showcases the rear exterior view of the library as its steel frames are being erected, nearing completion. The meticulous engineering work is evident in this image, highlighting both the skill and dedication of the workers involved. Designed by E Vincent Harris, an acclaimed architect known for his iconic structures, this library stands as a testament to his visionary talent. The steel frames seen here were manufactured by Banister, Walton and Co Ltd. , further emphasizing their contribution to this architectural marvel. The photo also offers glimpses into daily life during that era. Workmen can be seen diligently carrying out their tasks amidst towering scaffolding and construction materials strewn about. An advertising hoarding strategically placed nearby adds a touch of nostalgia to the scene. Preserved by Stewart Bale Limited through Historic England's archives, this print serves as a valuable historical document showcasing not only remarkable architecture but also capturing an important phase in Manchester's development. It invites viewers to appreciate both the grandeur of design and the laborious efforts that went into creating such magnificent structures that continue to enrich our cities today.
