Koffee Pot, Oldham Street
The striking image painted onto the side of the Koffee Pot café in Oldham Street, is the latest tribute to those killed in the Manchester Arena bombing of 22 May 2017 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_Arena_bombing . It is the work of artist Russell Meeham, also known as ‘Qubek’, and was commissioned by the Manchester Evening News. Each of the 22 worker bees, pictured swarming around a honey heart, represents one of the 22 innocent people killed in the horrific attack. The bee was first adopted as a motif for Manchester during the industrial revolution, and seven bees are included in the crest of the city’s arms, which were granted to the Borough of Manchester in 1842. At the time the bee represented the hard work of Mancunians and the textile mills that were commonly described as hives of activity, with the workers inside them compared to bees. But following the horrific terrorist attack it has come to represent Manchester’s “defiant spirit”. This MEN article http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/gallery/manchester-bees-mural-amazing-mancunian-13137136 includes photographs of the mural being painted onto the wall.

With Art Deco detail, including stylised Ionic columns and incised geometric patterns framing the Oldham Street facade. A Thai/Malaysian restaurant at ground floor, above may have been converted to housing - the top certainly looks like a modern flat with rooftop garden.
