Manchester is one of the largest cities in the United Kingdom and has a history that stretches right back to Roman times. The city began life in around AD 79 as a civilian settlement associated with the Roman fort of Mamucium, or Mancunium, based near the confluence of the rivers Medlock and Irwell. It was with the onset of the Industrial Revolution that Manchester really began to thrive and develop into the city we know and love today. Join author Eric Krieger as he examines the city’s fascinating past through a selection of charming vintage postcards from his personal collection, with each image offering a unique insight into this city and its people.
