The Willam Gladstone statue stands in front of the Manchester Old Town Hall. Gladstone was one of the most important political figures of the Victorian era (Benjamin Disraeli being the other). He was British Prime Minister on four occasions, yet he was roundly hated by Queen Victoria. He started his career as a Conservative Tory, and ended his career as a very radical liberal. He is credited to having started the Liberal Party, which continues to function as a political party in modern times. BTW, Gladstone was born in Liverpool, and not Manchester.

La plaza de Albert es de las más lindas de Manchester, con el ayuntamiento de fondo, alberga memoriales a personalidades locales que embellecen aún más la ciudad. Uno de ellos es una estatua a William Gladstone, un gran político del siglo XIX, que llegó a ser Primer Ministro Británico.
