And find it gone
Remember this, our favorite town

Express Building, Manchester, EnglandPhoto by Ernest Cockburn
Didn’t know there was another Express building, yes, modeled on the one in London, and with many of the same very fine features. 
From Flickr:

Perhaps England’s finest glass and vitreolite Art Deco building, my Uncle occupied a Sub Editors desk there in the 1960’s.

From another Flickr posting, more info:

This is where my father used to work. I just love this building with it’s amazing art deco curves covered with black and mirror glass!
The Daily Express Building, located in Ancoats, Manchester, is a Grade II* listed building built in 1930s art-deco style. It was designed by Sir Owen Williams to house one of three Daily Express offices; the other two located in London and Glasgow. The building was purposely built to resemble that which was located on Fleet Street in London. It features typical Art Deco elements: rounded corners, setbacks and a simple contrasting clear and black glass curtain wall.
The Express began printing there in 1938 having been on the same site since 1927. Construction had to take place in stages so publishing could continue without interruption.
The newspaper left the building in the 1980’s and it has since been converted into apartments and offices.

Well I taught that weeping willow how to cry cry cry,
Taught the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.

You say you’ve seen this town clear through
(Well, well, well - you can never tell)
Nothin here that could interest you
(Well, well, well - you can never tell)

Well that blaze and noise boy, he’s gunnin’ that bitch loaded to blastin’ point
He rides headfirst into a hurricane and disappears into a point
And there’s nothin’ left but some blood where the body fell
That is, nothin’ left that you could sell
Just junk all across the horizon, 
a real highwayman’s farewell

But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence

Stephen prospered in his time, well he may and he may decline.
Did it matter, does it now? Stephen would answer if he only knew how.
