Posters from the Past ........... no 8 eating fresh pasta in that fine building on Shudehill

Now the project is simple, take a modern image of a building we all love and turn it into the style of poster which was popular in the middle decades of the last century.*

And that has taken me back to no 77 Shudehill which is a building I have always liked.

I have passed it countless times over the years and never really looked into its past.

But all that changed last Sunday when Tina and I called in to The Pasta Factory which now occupies the ground floor.

The story of that visit and the excellent food we had has already appeared on the blog, so that only leave me to induct it into our Hall of Posters from the Past.**

You know the series ........ I nominate a modern building, Peter transforms it into an image which could have been used in a period poster and I write the story.

So here is The Pasta Factory at nu 77 Shudehill.***

The poster style dates from the 1930s through to the 50s when the site was a bank, but as ever we can be a little economical with the past.
