Tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore on Tib Street
Tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore on Tib Street
The former electricity substation on the corner of Tib Street and Thomas Street in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter is managed by The Outhouse, an outdoor project space for public art, and has developed something of a cult following in recent years. The once-inconspicuous brick building has been used as a canvas by some of Manchester's most talented street artists.

The latest mural to adorn its wall is the impressive image of Captain Sir Tom Moore (AKA “Captain Tom”). Celebrated local street artist Akse_P19 painted the artwork in tribute to the 100-year-old, who died on 2 February. The Army veteran won the nation's hearts by walking 100 laps of his garden during the first lockdown, raising almost £33m for NHS charities (LinkExternal link Wikipedia). He was knighted by the Queen in July in a special ceremony at Windsor Castle.

Akse P19 is the artist behind a number of murals in the city including a tribute to NHS workers (SJ8498 : Coronavirus Angel) and George Floyd (SJ8498 : George Floyd Mural, Stevenson Square), who died after being arrested in the US in May 2020. The street artist also created a mural to footballer Marcus Rashford (SJ8493 : Portrait of a National Treasure) in Withington in recognition of the Manchester United star's successful campaign to extend free school meals.
