Smiths exhibition in Manchester

Smiths_salford
A must for fans of Manchester past and in particular of The Smiths is an exhibition of the bands most famous photographs at Manchester’s Urbis gallery, taken by Stephen Wright.

The pictures range from concert shots to more casual images around Manchester and nearby Salford, including the iconic images taken outside Salford Lads Club (pictured) . The Lads Club building, which you’ll find in Coronation Street, Ordsall, has become a mecca for Smiths fans all over the world. Another image, featuring Morrissey with flowers hanging from his back pocket at the now demolished Free Trade Hall, was recently voted one of the top 50 rock pictures of all time by the NME.

The exhibition runs from August 30th to October 16th. There should be an online presence for the exhibition on the Urbis site from the start of September.
