The Elizabeth Gaskell house in Manchester is showing from February an exhibition on
Elizabeth Gaskell’s Manchester
Elizabeth Gaskell lived in Manchester from 1832 until her death in 1865, a time of huge change and expansion for the city, which raised many challenges for its residents from the coming of the railways and the Free Trade Movement and the Reform Acts to the Cholera and the Cotton Famine on the other.
The exhibition focuses on the Politics, Commerce, Transport, Learning, Churches, the Mills, the Poor, the Shops, Art, Music and Literature.
Anthony is hoping to offer a day school in the Summer term on the topic
