Things aren't always what they seem 💣
.
Tucked away down an unsuspecting street, it would be easy to walk pass this dishevelled building without a second thought
.
Pulling off its invisibility cloak & unveiling its history, the shell was built in the 1950s in reaction to the threat of nuclear war. Digging 30 metres down, they carved out Cold War tunnels running towards Arwick & Salford 🌁
.
Stocked with six months of rations for forty people, the tunnels were completely self-sufficient just in case of attack. Across Manchester & Salford there are other buildings & shafts that lead underground to these communication Tunnels, although none are accessible to the public
.
With constant technological advantages in warfare, by the time the bunker was complete in 1958, it was already outdated. It was quickly realised that the bunker wouldn't survive a hydrogen bomb & the space was transformed into a Telephone Exchange ☎️
.
Thanks to @freetours_mcr for pointing out this hidden gem! Join him to find out more about the bunker & some conspiracy theories behind it 💎

Augmented reality art. Yep, that’s what I stumbled across in Manchester Central Library yesterday. The Danger Tree is the first exhibition of its kind in the world, mixing paintings of The Somme with real stories of the people who fought there or who were impacted by the war. Incredibly moving. And it’s free to wonder round. If you have a free hour I highly recommend it. #manchester #visitmanchester #art #library #freeart #war #augmented #culture #cultureonyourdoorstep

The morning light brings out beautiful details of our sculpture ‘Theology Directing the Labours of Science and Art’, located in the original entrance hallway of the Library. 
Mrs Rylands commissioned John Cassidy, who was responsible for the statue of her husband in the Historic Reading Room, to prepare the design to occupy this important position of the Library. It was installed in February 1898.

Back alley views 🏙️
.
Finding alternative views of Manchester's iconic buildings, you never know what you might discover popping down a gap between  two buildings
.
Along Whitworth Street, grand Edwardian facades line the busy road. Built in 1899, the road was designed to connect Oxford Road & London Road Stations 🚂
.
Seeing the street's potential, over the next decade & a bit, a trio large warehouses were built along the road for Lloyd's Packing Warehouses Limited. Using fire-proof techniques, India, Lancaster & Bridgewater House were all designed by Manchester Architect Harry Fairhurst
.
Large windows at the back of the building, stream light into the former warehouse. After the decline of the textile industry & closure of the building, the space was transformed into social housing flats & now the windows stream light into people's homes
.
During the 1990s, India House became home to Noel Gallagher where he wrote many of the songs that appeared on Osais's first two albums 🎶

It was a really educational and entertaining panel discussion @homemcr yesterday for my first taste of Push Festival.
•
The panel that included Dan Hett, Sarah Emmott and Loran Dunn talked through many topics and shared experiences for Setting Up as a Freelancer. Kate Bradnam was chairing and I’m sure I can speak for all attendees when I say there were plenty of takeaways for anyone with an interest in the freelance world.

When admiring the Town Hall yesterday I was one of the last members of the public in the Great Hall just before we were asked to leave ahead of the Lord Mayor’s key handover at 4pm.
•
As a result this photo of the grand organ being played is one of the very last moments that music will be heard from inside the Town Hall for a full six years (unless there’s an upcoming party I don’t know about, and if so please invite me!). How’s that for a Blue Monday thought?! 😕

It might be #BlueMonday - but Frank says you can get through it! 👍🏻👍🏻
•
Frank Sidebottom was the persona of Sale-born Chris Sievey in the 70's and 80's; known for his not-so-subtle papier-mache head and sharp suit. He was an aspiring pop star who made appearances on BBC Radio 1, Channel M and Granada Reports.
•
More recently Michael Fassbender played the title character in the 2014 film Frank which is based largely on Chris's character (it's a brilliant film that I recommend you watch if you haven't already).

Since we’re in saving mode at the moment, we’re on the hunt for cheap/free things to do in Manchester. This weekend we found ourselves cheering on @wd_cfc at their first match of the new year.
We had so much fun! It’s only the second football match I’ve ever been to but I’d love to go again - £5 tickets, £2.50 pies and plenty of tea. What’s not to love? Plus there were lots of adorable dogs running around which made me extra happy 🐶. Congrats on the win, guys! 😀

It’s always grey in Manchester, but it’s okay.
The Father of Computer Science 🖥
.
Between the old warehouses, glass skyliners & murky canals, there are pockets of peaceful sanctuarys away from the hustle & bustle of city life 🏙
.
On the outskirts of the Gay Village, Alan Turing has been given a permanent home in Sackville Gardens. Sitting on a bench, holding an unbitten apple, he watches the world go by & groups gather beside him waiting for @freetours_mcr on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays at 11am 😉
.
As a Masters student at King's College, Cambridge, Turing devised the concept known as the Turing Machine. The machine could  simulate any computer algorithm, solving anything that could be computed
.
During the Second World War, his thirst for knowledge & passion for computer science went on to help crack the enigma code at Bletchley Park. Decoding encrypted messages sent by the German military, the team at Bletchley were able to get ahead for the Axis forces shortening the war by a couple of years & saving millions of lives
.
The apple Turing is holding in his statue represents, Newton, the tree of knowledge & his death. After being found guilty of homosexuality in 1952, he was pumped full of oestrogen, chemically castrating him & denied security clearance at GCHQ. Struggling with the effects, Turing laced an apple with potassium cyanide & took his final bite 🍏
.
There is so much more to Alan's story & I can't do it justice on Instagram. If you want to know more about Manchester & Turing join Josh on his fantastic tour! 🎉

Happy Monday! It's absolutely raining cats and dogs this morning, which kinds ruins my plans to break up my day with some regular walks outside...and I definitely feel the grip of January has really got me good. It's technically Blue Monday today, but did you know that it's not really a thing at all, but a commercial construct?
.
.
.
It was actually first publicised as part of a 2005 press release from holiday company Sky Travel, who have claimed to have calculated the date using an equation. Ummm. Yeah.
.
.
.
Anyway, the rain might be battering at my windows, and I might not believe in Blue Monday but that doesn't mean I won't be practising a bit of self care today. One of my favourite pick me ups is looking through pics from my travels, and right now this one from the heart of Manchester's Norther Quarter is my favourite. What's your top "blue monday" tip? 🙃

I just got back from watching Darkest Hour at the cinema (which I highly recommend), and I could swear I was seeing Manchester Town Hall for the second time today...
•
Sure enough I wasn’t losing it, our great Gothic Town Hall was used for several scenes where it doubled for Parliament. It wasn’t the first time it’s been used for that purpose in a film; both Sherlock Holmes and The Iron Lady are just two recent examples.
•
I also noticed @thejohnrylands was used for some scenes, but I think I’ll use that as an excuse to post another of the photos I got last weekend 😏

I just got back from watching Darkest Hour at the cinema (which I highly recommend), and I could swear I was seeing Manchester Town Hall for the second time today... • Sure enough I wasn’t losing it, our great Gothic Town Hall was used for several scenes where it doubled for Parliament. It wasn’t the first time it’s been used for that purpose in a film; both Sherlock Holmes and The Iron Lady are just two recent examples. • I also noticed @thejohnrylands was used for some scenes, but I think I’ll use that as an excuse to post another of the photos I got last weekend 😏 • #TownHall  #Gothic  #Revival  #Architecture  #Interior  #Building  #Film  #Location  #DarkestHour  #Movie  #Parliament  #Double  #Stairs  #Lights  #Manchester  #IGersMcr  #BestofMCR  #LovinManchester  #ManchesterEveningNews  #Photography  #Wanderlust  #VisitManchester  #ThisIsMcr  #LUMIX  #LUMIXmasters  #Travel  #InstaTravel  #PicOfTheDay  #InstaDaily  #InstaGood
