Cotton
in Manchester

Log-in for full text

Cotton explores the textile history of Manchester by looking at its evolution from a large town into a major commercial city. Despite being a hub for cotton in the nineteenth century, cotton does not grow in Manchester, and so the city grew into a globalised centre of trade. The chapter touches on the little-known history of slavery that grew with the city, while demonstrating how the textile industry continued to evolve into the more recent past.
