This week, I’m sharing Three Tales of Old Collyhurst.
Following in the footsteps of my Cheetham and Crumpsall ‘Three Tales‘ shows, I’ve found three little stories from Victorian and Edwardian Collyhurst. These are not the sort of stories that make it into the history books, but instead give a little slice of life. Expect a notorious murder, a dodgy elopement and some unwholesome houses. (If I get time, there might be an extra little story about a horrible dog too!)
In addition to my three Collyhurst stories, I’ll be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers.
