Elsie Tanner appears on new Manchester mural

Copyright: Michael J Browne
Coronation Street's Elsie Tanner has turned up on a muriel mural in a new Manchester Italian restaurant called Gusto.

The mural is a five-metre wide Renaissance mural painted by artist Michael J Browne. It includes portraits of pioneering Mancunians and important figures from music and literature.

There’s even Pat Phoenix, better known as Coronation Street's Elsie Tanner, leaning on the door of the Rovers Return.

Talking about the painting, Michael Browne said: “My brief was based around Central Library and the idea of Manchester firsts and achievements. I’ve extended that to famous people, and I’ve picked people who are famous for being rebellious or for their hard work in the city."

You can find out more about the mural at the Manchester Evening News where they have lots of pictures of it too.
