Hello from the other Manchester

Recommended Posts

Hello people of Manchester, New Hampshire:

I thought i'd say hi and let you know about our Manchester over in England!

Manchester is one of Britain's biggest, most vibrant and important cities. It is home to the world's biggest sporting club in Manchester Utd (and another premier league team in Manchester City), It has 4 universities, was the world's first industrial city, the world's first passenger railway, the atom was discovered here, its the home of the industrial revolution and the birthplace of the computer.

It has recently undergone a massive regeneration having bid for the olympics (and hosting the commonwealth games). Much of the city was destroyed by the largest ever terrorist bomb in the UK back in 1996 but has been rebuilt far bigger and better than before. Britain's tallest residential building is also under-construction here.

The population of Greater Manchester is around 2.5 million people.

Here are some pics:
