Agostino Aglio

If 'Mr Flemming' is Thomas Fleming (1767-1848) then we are faced with an Aglio portrait of the distinguished citizen, influential Tory politician, and promotor of the Gas Works enterprise, whose statue may be seen in Manchester Cathedral; he was also a Commissioner in the Tax Office at 17 Brazennose Street in 1840, as well as being a Deputy Treasurer of the Manchester Royal Infirmary in the same year.
