We spent the day in Manchester. It took us about two hours by train to get there from London. We visited the Manchester City Art Gallery. To our disappointment we found nothing of the streets where Sri Aurobindo had lived, except an old pub. It has quite a different atmosphere compared to London. The red brick tall Victorian houses still preserve something of that time when Manchester was the centre of industrial activities in Britain.
