University of Manchester

This building belongs to the University of Manchester, in Old Hall Lane in Rusholme, Manchester. It holds a fascination because of its geometry. Today the light was just right and the blue sky a treat.

Ellen Wilkinson High School

A building that dominates Hyde Road in the district of Ardwick, Manchester. Its strident and powerful presence reminds everyone who passes the importance of Education. The building is now a college and has survived despite a drastic roof fire during renovations.

 

Ellen Wilkinson High School is named after a lady Member of Parliament of the same name, who was born in Manchester. In 1945 she was appointed Minister of Education, the first woman to do so. She persuaded Parliament to pass the 1946 School Milk Act that gave free milk to all British schoolchildren for the first time.
