Morrissey The Smiths at Manchester FTH 1984, White T-Shirt - ©Stephen Wright
Beautiful Original Photo of Morrissey taken by Stephen Wright (Smiths Photos) during the gig that The Smiths Performed at the Manchester Free Trade Hall the 13 March of 1984.
In Stephen Wright Words:
From 1984 Classic young Morrissey.
The front stage area at the concert was like a massive rugby scrum – no chance of getting photos so I climbed into the lighting rigging on the side of the stage and hid.This and the “Bum and flowers” photo were shot the first time I got to shoot the Smiths and led to the Queen is Dead album sleeve session.

Free Trade Hall
The Free Trade Hall was built as a public hall between 1853 and 1856 by Edward Walters. It was bought by a Manchester Corporation in 1920; but was bombed and left an empty shell in the Manchester Blitz of December 1940. A new hall was constructed behind two walls of the original facade in 1950–51 by Manchester City Council's architect, L. C. Howitt opening as a concert hall in 1951, as well as for pop and rock concerts.
A part from The Smiths, well-known bands played at Manchester Free Trade Hall: Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones or The Sex Pistols.
In 1996 the Free Trade Hall was closed by Manchester City Council and a year later the building was sold to private developers despite resistance from groups such as the Manchester Civic Society.
