Event description
Manchester’s Lost District: Life before the Arndale

About this Event

Manchester’s ‘Lost District’ was a vibrant business and entertainment area with a mixture of textile warehouses, tailors’ workshops, ancient pubs, music venues, night clubs and coffee bars and the book includes many amazing pictures of the area. Keith took many of these photographs himself in the 50s and 60s before these streets were swept away including one of this second hand book shop in Marsden Square. Marsden Square, described in 1951 as a ‘Georgian backwater’ may have provided Charles Dickens with the inspiration for a London street in ‘Nicholas Nickleby’.
