The artist Ned Owens and his first wife Margo Ingham set up the Mid-Day Studios in 1946 in the basement of a house opposite the City Art Gallery.

It was a privately run gallery which exhibited works by local artists. Lowry's first major one person show was held here in 1948. The gallery closed in 1951.
