Queer Noise



A full page advert for Manto culled from a City Life magazines, early 1991.

The events line-up through the week coupled with the drinks menu reveals some of the ambition and sophistication that owners Peter Dalton and Carol Ainscow were striving for.

At this time imported bottled beers like Michelob were considered pretty hip. Also available: Purdeys and 'health' drinks.

On Friday nights you may even achieve a 'muscular spasm'.

An almost complete collection of City Life magazine is available to view by appointment at Archives+, Central Library.

Thanks to David Govier.
