Central Manchester before the Victorian age was a mess of narrow, winding streets centred around the Cathedral. These streets were made up of a hotchpotch of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century houses in which the town’s inhabitants both lived and worked.
Come and take a walk through pre-Victorian Manchester, without even leaving your seat. By examining evidence from maps, photographs, paintings, drawings and diaries we will explore Manchester’s streets and buildings before the Victorians began ‘improving’ them by knocking them down. We will even take a peek inside some houses to find out what it was really like to live there.
