Uniquely Manchester: Happy #MCRDay from The Media Octopus

Manchester is one of the most unique cities on the planet. Its attitude to life and its view of the world around it are like no other. We love Manchester and to show off our undying affection, we made you something pretty for Manchester Day.

To celebrate #MCRDay, we’ve drawn up a little competition – literally.

As residents of Greater Manchester we’re not only proud of its rich history but also of everything the vibrant area has to offer past, present and future.

It’s a great place to be, and that’s exactly what Manchester Day is all about: celebrating the creativity, diversity and everything else that’s great about the city.

Choosing the iconic images was a hard, long, drawn out process of debate and deliberation in The Media Octopus office. Narrowing down the icons to be featured was difficult, but we think we’ve covered most of the bases. We’ve included 20 different images, some immediately recognisable, some more obscure. If you can guess them all correctly, there might be a prize… (n.b. there is not currently a prize).

Give the graphic a good going over, feel free to share, and let us know what you think on Twitter (@themediaoctopus) or leave us a note in the comments below.

Happy Manchester Day (on Sunday), Manchester!
