Doves of Peace
The Doves of Peace sculpture stands on Quay Street near the Pump House Museum (now The People's History Museum) and just before the road crosses the River Irwell by way of the Albert Bridge. The sculpture was created by Michael Lyons and unveiled on September 8, 1986. It was commissioned by the Manchester City Council and depicts 15 doves rising to the sky with their wings entwined. It is made of steel sprayed with zinc and painted with white epoxy paint. The inscription on the pedestal is: "THE WORLD'S FIRST NUCLEAR FREE CITY AND SPONSORED BY THE PLANNING COMMITTEE OF MANCHESTER CITY COUNCIL"
