One of the real surprises was learning about the 'Manchester Corporation Rutherston Loan Collection' which allowed the people of Manchester to borrow pieces of art for their homes, like books from the library. What a superb idea!
It was truly a magical evening and great to go under the building to see the parts you usually only see on TV! Amongst the racking I also spotted a Liam Spencer oil painting, that surely should be on show!
