The Portico Library, Mosley St
The Portico Library, Mosley St
The Portico Library was opened in 1806, following a decision taken by a group of Manchester businessmen in 1803 to found an institute uniting the advantages of a newsroom and a library. It is a listed Grade II* building of Runcorn stone, a fine example of Neo-Classical architecture designed by Thomas Harrison, architect of the earlier Liverpool Lyceum and a leading exponent of the classical revival of which the Portico is one of the finest examples.
