4.0 out of 5 stars
Book rating, 17 Feb. 2012
Has info. on history, as well as architectural terms and features of each building. Main buildings get alot of pages, others a number of paragraphs. As a lay person, my appreciation of Manchester buildings and history was massively enhanced. It's well organised into chapters covering main buildings, modern academic buildings, town centre and outlying areas of central Manchester. Also has extra pages on related topics eg. ceramic tiles. Has a picture on each page. It's small and compact, but I don't like the shape - pages too narrow, a bit awkward to hold. Despite that I like it alot and keep referring to it.
