The Britons Protection, Manchester (50x70cm Acrylic on board.) Painted 2014. SOLD.
An iconic Manchester pub which appears in the Camra book 'Britain's Best Real Heritage Pubs' and figures significantly in the city's history from its origins back in 1811 when it was used as a recruitment point for soldiers in the Napoleonic Wars, through the Peterloo Massacre when, legend has it, it was one of the few places to offer shelter to those being butchered on the streets (some people say this is how it got its name), to the Madchester era when it was used as a makeshift office by Factory Records and was frequented by lots of characters of that period. Sells over 150 different types of whiskey/whisky.
