E Vincent Harris at work

E Vincent Harris at work, originally uploaded by fotofacade.

Manchester's Town Hall extension (at the back - 1934-8) and Public Library (foreground 1930-4) both by E Vincent Harris. The Town Hall extension is a superb structure often overshadowed by Waterhouses Victorian building. It was designed to harmonise the Gothic of the Town Hall with the Classicism of the Library. It works well.
