The piece below is by L S Lowry (Laurence Stephen Lowry), an English artist born in Stretford, Lancashire. Many of his drawings and paintings depict Pendlebury, where he lived and worked for over 40 years, and Salford and its surrounding areas. (Wikipedia has an interesting article on Lowry.)
This Lowry painting depicts a town scene with the Mount Zion chapel in the Lancashire market town which can be seen on the right in this 1954 painting A Street in Clitheroe.
Piccadilly Gardens today.
