Om boka

Manchester has changed rapidly in the last 100 years. The Lancashire market town was transformed during the Industrial Revolution through the manufacture of textiles, becoming the world's first industrialised city. Its growth was largely unplanned but during the nineteenth century the Manchester Ship Canal was constructed, along with many of the great civic buildings of Manchester. Alongside the new wealth, the city also contained extremes of poverty and suffered extensive damage from aerial bombardment in the Second World War and the massive IRA bomb explosion in 1996. Mass rebuilding and regeneration has taken place as a result.

In Manchester From Old Photographs author Eric Krieger has drawn on a remarkable selection of old images to give a pictorial record of how much the city and the community has changed over the last century. Although many landmarks have remained the same over the years, these photographs show the city adapting and evolving, with many other buildings being replaced and the pattern of life in the city changing for many too. This fascinating collection of images will be of interest to those who have lived in Manchester or know it well, as well as the many visitors to the area.
