Suitable for key stage 2 and beyond, we like the INDUSTRIAL Mp3 audio (with Pdf), which delves into Manchester’s industrial heritage, including Rochdale Canal and then comes right up-to-date with modern industrial Manchester. There’s even a map so you can take a walk to discover Manchester’s past.
More from museums, libraries and archives
You can find online photos of industrial Manchester, for example of the cotton industry mentioned in INDUSTRIAL, in Manchester Archives and Local Studies Libraries.
