Victorian Manchester Through Time PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Victorian Manchester Through Time free pdf Manchester's unique Victorian red-brick and sandstone architecture still dominates the twenty-first century skyline, despite modern developments. Manchester's Victorian history consists of much more than cotton mills and canals. Scientists like John Dalton enhanced the city's reputation. The world's first passenger railway station is located at Liverpool Road, which was later superseded by Victoria Station. Manchester University, originally the Victoria University of Manchester, has a worldwide reputation as an academic institution, and writers like James Kay, Edwin Chadwick, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels have commented on the fascinating effects of Manchester's rapid growth. Victorian Manchester Through Time contains fascinating contemporary and modern photographs that detail how some of the city's more familiar buildings and streets have changed over the last 150 years. Featured are impressive views of Piccadilly, Market Street, Manchester Cathedral, St Peter's Square and Oxford Road, depicting the evolution of this north-west cultural hotspot.
