Description

 
Following on from Around Manchester in the 1950s and Around Manchester in the 1960s, this latest volume comes packed with photographs and informative captions on the decade that witnessed such things as the UK joining the EEC; giving up its centuries old currency of pounds, shillings and pence for decimalisation; experiencing the blackouts of the three-day week, and watching with interest as Prime Minister Edward Heath took on the miners and then lost his ‘Who Governs Britain?’ General Election.

It was also the decade of Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee; the decade when large shopping malls made their appearance and the decade when looking at what teenagers and twenty-somethings were wearing told us what music they liked.

It was a topsy-turvey decade for the area's League clubs. Manchester United spent a season in the Second Division; Bolton Wanderers climbed from the Third to the First; Oldham were promoted to the Second and Rochdale were relegated to the Fourth and at the end of the 1977-78 season were forced to seek re-election. In Rugby League, Leigh reached the final of the Challenge Cup for the first time in half a century.

As with the previous volumes, Around Manchester in the 1970s is 160 pages packed with images and information. For the first time in this series colour photographs have been included. As newspapers back then lacked the colour printing capability of today’s Press, colour photography tended to be limited to sporting events; the papers hoping to sell prints to readers.

My father was born and lived on Meadow Street Moss Side

They only go out to smash bus shelters now !

That’s how streets used to be all over in the 50s and 60s. Brilliant!!

The concentration of so many cotton mills led to Ancoats being labelled the first industrial suburb in the world. It was here that the industrial revolution came of age, and the spinning mule and the steam engine came together for the first time β™₯️
