A Helping of History - 04/09/2018

Playing tracks by

Peggy Lee, Eddie Cochran, The Four Seasons, Roy Orbison and Kirsty Maccoll.

This week, I’m going to be breaking one of my usual rules on the show, and venturing into the city centre for a rather personal story about research.

A couple of years ago, Chethams Library tweeted an image of a lantern slide showing a street scene in Manchester. It was undated, and the location wasn’t given. But something about the picture captured my imagination… and it haunted me for two years! On this week’s show, I’ll be telling the story of how I became obsessed with this street scene, and how I investigated it. I’ll also be revealing (what I believe is) the date and location of the picture. (And if you check out my Twitter feed during the show, you can see links to the image itself.)

Of course, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s iconic buildings?
