Manchester’s proud past can be well summed up in its headlines. Steven Dickens delves into the archives of the Evening News to discover the events and personalities that have made the city what it is today. From the dramatic effects of the First and Second World Wars on the city and its residents to its regeneration in the 1980s, the Madchester era of the 1990s and beyond, learn about Manchester’s status as a cultural, industrial and political powerhouse. The stories uncovered are a testament to the wit and generosity of the city’s people.

Steven Dickens perfectly encapsulates the essence of Manchester and what has helped to create one of the most distinctive senses of community pride. This book highlights why Manchester always was, and continues to be, a thriving town and the most culturally relevant city in the north-west.
