A Black and White photographic tour of the city that gave us Oasis, The Stone Roses, The Smiths, The Happy Mondays and New Order. It was place where Rutherford first split the atom and the birthplace of the first modern computer. Manchester boomed in Victorian Britain and many of the inventions and industrial achievements stem from that time.
