Caption: The front of John Rylands Library seen from Deansgate. When John Rylands died in 1888 his wife commissioned architect Basil Champneys to design a library which would house Rylands' collection of theological books. The library, designed in the Gothic style, was built between 1890-1899. It later became part of the University of Manchester.
