faulkner street door manchester china town

This enormous entrance door linked to a Grade II listed builing is sandwiched between a crazy Chinese gift shop and a restaurant on Faulkner Street in the heart of Manchester’s China town. It was once a cotton traders which is still indicted on the bearly readable plaque outside.

I just love the overly tall proportion of this wooden door and like many a great front door probably could tell quite a few stories. The texture of the cracking paintwork and splintering wood give it fantastic character. I really wanted to photograph the unusual proportion off the door so had to step across the road ton fill the frame. I also shot a few close up detail shots here too.
