WW1 A7V German tank in Manchester

Went out to the Sapporo Japanese restaurant in Manchester and decided to walk the meal off in the next door Manchester Museum of Science & Industry and very interesting it was too. However we were surprised to find an A7V German tank just outside the Power Hall and in very good condition. It is of course a replica but very impressive.
Some details about the A7V here

  1. I could choose to fit the canvas print that I was ordering from wahooart.com to the pattern and color of the wallpaper in my living room. I could search for artwork by subject matter and even predominant colors. Then I customized the frame online because the site allowed me to match the frame style with different wallpapers, one of which looked like ours.
    So now have this canvas print by Pierre Bonnard, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT4PD
