A superb pastel of the famous CIS building on Miller Street, a one time dominant presence on city centre Manchesters sky line. Here he somehow managed to capture the contrast against a clear blue summer sky. The building is of Architectural interest: it has a strikingly elegant and sophisticated design inspired by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill's Inland Steel Building in Chicago (1956-8). This pastel by Gordon in 1974 captures the towering majesty of the building with more dated urban foreground.
