This chapter argues that the middle set of the Manchester murals indicate that Brown adopted a Carlylean mentality when emphasising the scale and intimacy of historical events. It seeks to shed light on the ways in which Brown understood social development and explores the critical languages he employed when tackling the nature of public life. The bulk of the chapter, however, focuses on how Brown associated the imagination with politics when he represented John Wycliffe and Humphrey Chetham, both of whom were central to his vision of national culture.
