THROUGH MANCHESTER THE ROAD TO GLASGOW GOES ON TO PRESTON

Piccadilly, in Manchester, is a continuation of the London Road, and the open space to one side of it, formerly occupied by an infirmary, is the site of the new art gallery and museum. Preston (top) possesses an imposing set of buildings in its market-place. These include, besides the town hall, the great building of the Harris Free Public Library and Museum, built after a Greek style by James Hilbert, in 1893. Next to it, on the left, is the Sessions Hall, with a tower which is 179 feet tall. Preston boasts some of the finest public buildings in the country.
