Getting to the heart of Manchester

The first day of Spring was spent staring at warehouse buildings in Manchester.  Here is ‘Labour and Wait’ a plaque on the side of one of the earliest Co-operative Movement buildings just off Balloon Street in the centre of the city. As a Co-op Bank customer who sends his cheques to number 1 Balloon Street, gazing at the place from where all of its co-operativeness comes from was quite a moving moment.
