The Town Hall Collection - paintings
It was a huge but necessary task to empty the whole building before any work can start on the Our Town Hall Project.

All of the Town Hall Collection has been removed to temporary new homes or to storage for the duration of the project.

The painting and photograph collection is dominated by portraits of prominent councillors and noteworthy municipal figures: the works provide a visual history of the political life of Manchester. Their significance lies in the stories of the individual sitters and the impact they made on the history of the city.

All of the paintings can be viewed online via the Art UK website
