Actually that lass in Manchester, looking at it more closely, as you do, I'm not sure she actually is smoking a ciggy. It looks more like she is pointing. In fact it looks as if she's pointing to one of the nearby railway viaducts and lecturing the punter on the history of Manchester's railway infrastructure! I guess when you work in such historic surroundings you start to pay attention to the local history and take an interest!
I didnt realise that street was in Vulture territory - shame its not really called that, I can imagine you guys having offices above Corner Hoe Street for some reason!
