St Peter's Square

These are paintings of the area around St. Peter's Square looking at the area from various angles, including views of the Midland Hotel, Town Hall Annex, the Library etc. It is presently being redeveloped. I hope it doesn't get ruined, given that Manchester City Council have ruined more than a few pieces of iconic Mancunian heritage in the past.
