The Daily Express building, Great Ancoats Street, Manchester.
Built in 1939 by Sir Owen Williams in the Art-Deco style and one of three
built for Beaverbrook Newspapers - the other two are in London and Glasgow.
This is Manchester's only 1930's listed building (Grade II*).  Express
Newspapers left the building in the 1980s - I remember you could see the presses
working through the windows at street level, an impressive sight.
The building has now been converted into offices and apartments
and is known as Expressnetworks.

Derros Building and Hudson Building, Great Ancoats Street.
For unknown reasons, this former Methodists' Women's Night Shelter is known locally
as the Derros Building.  The attractive Arts and Crafts style building provided accommodation,
sewing classes and a coffee tavern.  The Hudson Building was (I think) a warehouse.
Both have now been converted into apartments.

Strange goings-on outside the City of Manchester Stadium.
Apparently there's a 'Take That' concert on tonight - whoever they may be.
