A mooch around 12 Car Parks - 11th November 2023
Saturday November 11th 2023
What does the humble car park tell us about a city?
This tour aims to explore the evolution of car parks in the city of Manchester, from the humble gravel-covered bomb sites of the post-war years to the spiralling concrete ramps of the 1960s and the aluminium and Cor-ten clad structures of the 2000s.
The tour will start at 12:00 PM at the modernist shop located at 58 Port Street. It will cover a range of car parks, from the mundane to the downright bonkers.
Steve's recently published 2024 calendar '12 Car Parks' is available here and at the modernist shop.
