Signs of the Times Northern Quarter & Ancoats

A collection of 45 original, classic pieces of signage taken all around Manchester’s Northern Quarter and Ancoats - from the Victorian ragged schools and ancient pubs and shops, to the more contemporary bars and haunts of this fascinating area.
If there is a particular sign that would mean something to you, I am happy to add a picture or two to make it a one off, and am always open to discuss such commissions.
The picture can be created at different sizes, and you’re welcome to view it at my studio in its original size.



Signs of the Times Manchester

This picture is designed as bricks in a wall, and contains twenty ‘blocks’ and a total of over 100 pieces of classic, original Manchester signage. Travel, pubs, markets, jewellers, recreation, mills, street signs….. Covering a span of several centuries, these are the pieces of signage which still exist all over the city, and which make it unique.
Please note that the pictures can be reworked to the style of the Northern Quarter signs picture (above), and can be created in different sizes.
The original picture can be viewed at my studio by arrangement.
