A Helping of History - 02/07/2019

Playing tracks by

Dusty Springfield, The Crystals, Peggy Lee, The Marvelettes, The Four Seasons and more.

This week, I’ll be talking about one of Manchester’s forgotten (by some) heroes: Hannah Mitchell.

If you go to Broadway Baths, you may have seen the Manchester Corporation plaque to mark the opening of the baths by Councillor Hannah Mitchell in 1932. If you’ve ever been to Ingham Street in Newton Heath, you may have spotted a blue plaque on one of the houses, commemorating the same councillor. But who was Hannah Mitchell? And what was her contribution to the city, and to the country as a whole?

And of course, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers!
