The Illustrated History of Manchester’s Suburbs

Glynis Cooper

This fine selction of photographs from the Manchester Central Library collection shows how in the course of the last 150 years, the outskirts of the city have expanded in a way that would astonish Mancunians of just a few generations ago. It records the impact made on the city by the textile industry and, in particular, it recalls the explosion of trade, technology and population that resulted in the urbanization of the countryside as well as the relentless expansion that created new communities and absorbed the old.
