Strange Ancient Sign
In truth, it is a cartographer's mark which pinpoints the exact spot that represents the 17th Century city centre of Manchester.. As I was taking the photographs I had a brief conversation with a passing vicar.
Vicar: Should I ask?
Me: Yes. No problem.. I'm taking photographs of the true and exact centre of town..
Vicar: Ah Yes.. The centre of the Universe....
Of course it reminded me of Joy Division's Shadowplay,
"To the centre of the city where all roads meet waiting for you."
