“The production of all urban materiality involves the removal of that material from one place to supplement the fabric of another place. ... All of the stone in Manchester’s buildings conjures up this material absence in other places and, in addition, the current absence or presence of that extractive industry and the technologies, workers and owners that were involved in quarrying there.”
