An off-beat, sideways, soidisant look at Manchester history through 20 objects, some familiar, some little-seen and barely-noticed (statues, plaques, cartouches, shields etc) in the city centre...

...from the glorious railway map in Victoria Station, missing the world's oldest railway line, to the misunderstood “IRA” pillar box on Corporation Street, via "ancient "pubs dating back to 2000, the shock presence of Liver Birds on the Manchester streets and much more.

And a review from a very satisfied customer.

"Dear Ed. Thank you for a most interesting tour of’ ‘Manchester in 20 Objects’ last Tuesday. It was such a shame that more people did not turn up but those who joined us thoroughly enjoyed it! I was amazed at the familiar and unfamiliar objects that you chose to talk about and I shall now go around our city looking for some objects of my own! Thank you for all your efforts".
