Scenes from Manchester's Historic Past.
The Jubilee of the Manchester Town Hall, which was completed in 1877, is being celebrated today, and Manchester station is broadcasting a special organ recital by Dr, Kendrick Pyne and a talk by the Chairman of the Town Hall Committee. No feature of the Town Hall is better known than its series of frescoes by Ford Madox Brown, illustrating the history of Manchester. We reproduce two cf them above - Bradshaw's defence of Manchester in the Civil Wars, and the announcing of the proclamation regarding weights and measures in 1556.
