A classic work by LS Lowry, inspired by the cityscape of Manchester and Salford.

Largely inspired by his native Manchester and nearby Salford, Lowry's cityscapes, populated by his famous 'matchstick' people, focused affectionately on the the mills, factories and smoking chimneys of industry. These composite scenes mixed reality and imagination to create Lowry’s own powerful and unforgettable vision of modern industrialism.
