The first part of this chapter looks at different critical models of Manchester in Victorian culture and politics. It pays particular attention to the writings of Thomas Carlyle, who shaped Brown’s interest in the outsiders of official history. The second part of the chapter, which provides a set of detailed readings of the first four murals in the scheme, argues that Brown’s designs are united by an ambition to probe the critical spaces and meanings of academic History Painting.
