It's some years since I was last in Manchester, but I do remember the Great Northern building- fab piece of Victorian industrial.

According to Wikipedia, it was renovated in 1998, exactly 100 years since it was first built. As I left Manchester in the early 70s, it was either just about still in use as a warehouse or derelict, but either way would have been of no interest to me and thus I never noticed it. It would also have been totally black, like the cathedral, town hall and many other buildings were until they were cleaned in the 60s.

It was still smoke grimed and empty when I last saw it too.
