A view of a large crowd of people in Albert Square, Manchester; around the Albert memorial statue. Most of the crowd are looking to the left of the photo. On the far right is a banner which says ‘Armley Resource Centre Leeds’, only the letters ‘Armle Resour Centr Leed’ are visible.

There is a mix of people standing and sitting on the ground or in wheelchairs. some are holding banners and placards but the writing is not visible in the photo.
