Hey! Manchester - alternative concert promotions in the rainy city Hey! Manchester was established in February 2006 to promote alternative gigs in Manchester. We started up because Jens Lekman wasn’t going to play here and we wanted him to. The show sold out and everybody was very happy. History of Manchester United Old Trafford 1909 was also a milestone for United for another reason. John Henry Davies once again lent financial support by lending £60,000, a huge sum at the time, to finalise the team's move to Old Trafford. They played their first game there on 19 February 1910 as Liverpool spoiled the celebrations with a 4-3 win in a close game. Ernest Mangnall's leadership brought United to their first successful era. They would be the first winners of the Charity Shield in 1908, win the F.A Cup in 1909 and the League again in 1911.
Genius of Lancashire's 'matchstick' master: This summer's biggest exhibition reassesses the merits of LS Lowry - Features - Art Although he possessed a cloth cap, in every published photograph of him, whether at his easel or pounding the Lancashire streets, he is dressed in a dark suit and tie; out of doors, he wore a trilby. His job of rent collector with the Pall Mall Property Company, which he held down for more than 40 years, placed him squarely on the capitalist side of the class barricade. Yet it was his family's sudden tumble down the class ladder that triggered his genius.
History of Freemasonry in the Province of North Wales No institution can boast a more solid foundation than that on which Freemasonry rests - the practice of every moral and social virtue! At that time not all these Lodges would have been affiliated to the Premier Grand Lodge. The name of William Hughes of Holt is the very first reference, so far discovered, to speculative masonry in North Wales. His name is included amongst the list of members of a Freemasons Lodge meeting in Chester in 1660. Several of the other names listed are of Welsh origin but his is the only one whose place of residence is particularly noted to be in Wales.
LS Lowry and the industrial revolution Jackie Wullschlager on a Tate show that aims to challenge our perceptions of LS Lowry ©Bridgeman ‘The Pond’ (1950) good exhibition may enhance or deepen our understanding of an artist, but very few transform our perception of a well-known name. Tate Britain’s new Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life, curated by Marxist art historian TJ Clark and his American wife Anne Wagner, is the most radical and exciting re-evaluation of a British artist I have ever encountered, and a thrilling display of how paint conveys ideas, time, place – building a self-contained world at once absorbing and convincing in its relation to lived experience. Scale, ambition, intent and variety are qualities that we have not, until now, associated with LS Lowry.
The Centre for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism Freemasonry and the Problem of Britain Inaugural lecture by Andrew Prescott to mark the launch of the University of Sheffield's Centre for Research into Freemasonry, 5 March 2001. Most inaugural lectures draw together research which has been in progress for many years. This inaugural lecture is unusual in that it marks the launch of a new programme of research, with the establishment here at the University of Sheffield of the Centre for Research into Freemasonry, the first such centre in a British university. TIME FOR REFLECTIONS: What's this L S Lowry? Continuing my series of art critiques, I would like to introduce you to L S Lowry, an English painter who lived from 1887 to 1976. Laurence Stephen "L.S." Lowry was born in Stretford, Lancashire, in the North of England and many of his paintings depict scenes from Pendlebury, Salford and surrounding areas. His paintings were usually of urban landscapes and he painted human figures in a simplified way which was referred to as "matchstick men." The scene you see above is of the Northern town of Huddersfield which was painted in 1965. Those of you who have read my book "VISIONS", and my other books and stories about Father Ignatius, will know that they are set in an un-named Northern town in England in the 1950's and 60's.
