@skylinermcr Alexandra Place: The case of the missing building. Or rather, most of it.This is a bit long, and maybe a bit too historical for light-reading instagram but I swear I’m not doing all this research just to post ‘cool building’, so strap in…. This lovely flat-iron corner building, whilst it looks like a pub, was residential. It formed part of a larger building that houses 64 flats and formed the Rochdale Road tenements, the patch of land had been reserved as a means to widen Rochdale Road. The ground floor had two shops, the entrance to one being the very corner that we still have today. There are plenty of tales of crime and death in the archives for the residents of the tenements, and those who lived on Sudell Street over the years. In 1926 three boys drowned after paddling in the canal, unaware of a sudden 6 feet drop, they fell in. 14 people dived in to save them but no one could, it took the entire day to even recover their bodies. A young girl, Ann Darcy was unlucky enough to be stood on the street outside a barbers on Rochdale Road when the barber, James Rowan, was having a huge row with his wife. He picked up a kettle of boiling water and threw it at his wife, it missed and flew into the street hitting Ann on the head. James came to the door and said to his wife: ‘You will be satisfied now, you have done it now!’ (eugh, James, really?!) The girl died from her injuries. Another man loaned £40 to ‘an unemployed infant’ (aged 20) to set up business as a tobacconist but instead used the money for ‘life necessities’ (food and rent) and he failed to pay it back. In a rapid change of events the judge said he was liable to pay back the money but not the interest...then he ‘ordered his immediate execution’. Henry Morris, a 28 year old painter was seriously injured whilst working at London Road fire station when part of the roof collapsed, its possible his arm was ripped off. On the petty crime end of the scale Samuel Taylor was charged with embezzlement of £28 from his employer. Another man was arrested after falsely dealing horses. Several people were charged for using defective weights and measures, and many barrow hawkers were fined for overpricing apples.

@elvis_from_hell Lisboa, Portugal. - I’ve mostly been working my socks off pulling 16 hour days, getting myself back in to my health regime after a few weeks of indulgence over July, spending QT with our lass, planning more trips (Budapest again & Prague, and Edinburgh for Fringe next week), along with recovering from a trapped nerve in my shoulder - which adding it all up, has left shooting on the back burner for a few weeks.. I’m am starting to have withdrawals though. I’ve got a back log of work to edit through from Porto and Madeira which in all honesty is overwhelming.. as I’m not sure what to do with the series. In the ten minutes I just took to dust off my iMac, remember my login details and flick through the photos I’ve flagged when scanning, I’ve since thought fuck it I’m going to have a coffee instead.. not before sharing this one though.

@object_style Cheers to us ! Me, Mum, Alex and our dream team of builders have worked our bums off today preparing the shop for our soft opening on Thursday. The last hurdle is by far the hardest and definitely the most exhausting ! There’s a fair few spots to fill in, sand and touch up and I think I might be hoovering at least 90 times over the next few days but the end is near ! Standing back today and looking at our new signage, seeing Object, my spare bedroom side hustle on beautiful Beech Road literally feels like a dream ! Obviously dreams like this don’t come true without loyalty and support from our customers, so here’s a big fat cheers to all you lot for helping make this happen ! Happy Friday indeed 😘

@prideofmcr Next time you walk down Cambridge Street in Manchester city centre and admire the stunning old mills (now apartments and @manmetuni facilities), you might want to spare a thought for the innocent men, women and child who were brutally slaughtered at Peterloo, on this day 200 years ago. . The two large mills adjacent to @thecourtyardmcr (Chorlton Old Mill & Cambridge Mill), and the one with the chimney that houses the International Anthony Burgess Foundation @misterenderby (Chorlton New Mill) were both built and owned by leading Manchester millowner and leading Tory, Hugh Hornby Birley. . Birley was the commander of the Manchester & Salford Yeomanry (a volunteer regiment of Tory-supporting landowners, tradesmen, publicans and shopkeepers). He lead the cavalry charge into the crowd of peaceful protestors at St. Peter's Field, indiscriminately slashing and slaughtering the trapped unarmed workers with their sabres. . The Tory government and landowners congratulated Birley's actions as a "courageous defence against insurrection", passing on a message of thanks from the Prince Regent (George IV). . Public horror grew as news spread of the Yeomanry's actions at Peterloo and they were disbanded five years later. . #mcr #mcruk #salford #peterloo #mcrhistory #prideofmcr #manchester #mcrheritage #chorltonmills #manchesterpast #peterloomassacre #manchesterhistory #prideofmanchester #manchestermemories #manchesterobsessed #manchesterlife #mcr_collective #exploremcr #mcr_follow #welovemcr #bestofmcr #wearemcr #thisismcr #igersmcr #mcruk

@prideofmcr William Hulton - the man who ordered the cavalry to charge the peaceful protestors at St. Peter's Field, on this day 200 years ago - was a wealthy landowner, coal baron and Tory who lived at Hulton Park Estate in Westhoughton/Atherton (currently being redeveloped by Peel Holdings as a Ryder Cup-standard golf course, hotel and country park). At the age of just 24 he was appointed High Sheriff of Lancashire, immediately showing his strength by hanging four millworkers - including a 12 year old boy - for burning down Westhoughton Mill in a radical protest to destroy the modern textile machinery that was putting workers out of jobs. In 1819 he summoned the Manchester & Salford Yeomanry (a voluntary army made up of publicans, shopkeepers and tradesmen) to attack the 60,000 unarmed protestors at "Peterloo". Hulton became hated by the people of Manchester and was obliged to decline a safe parliamentary seat offered to him by the Tory Party in 1820. #mcr #mcruk #salford #peterloo #mcrhistory #prideofmcr #manchester #mcrheritage #williamhulton #manchesterpast #peterloomassacre #manchesterhistory #prideofmanchester #manchestermemories #manchesterobsessed #manchesterlife #mcr_collective #exploremcr #mcr_follow #welovemcr #bestofmcr #wearemcr #thisismcr #igersmcr #mcruk

@prideofmcr The Tory Government's immediate reaction to Peterloo was a crackdown on reform, with protest treated as "treason" and journalists treated as "radicals" and arrested for accurately reporting on the events. . The Manchester Observer was shut down shortly after this article: . "As we proceed in the description of this bloody Tragedy, fresh enormities present themselves: it nevertheless is a consolation to think that the strong hold of CORRUPTION has received a death blow, from which it can never recover - the tempest howls around its mouldering walls - its outworks fall in ruins - RETRIBUTION rides in the whirlwind and directs the fury of its blast - already tottering to its base, the first natural convulsion will sink its proud towers and level them forever with the dust. A fabric raised on human happiness and cemented with human blood - a system engendered in iniquity - founded in fraud - nurtured by delusion - SUPPORTED BY MURDER, feasting even on death, and flourishing amid GENERAL RUIN, cannot be classed with the things 'now and forever more;' - the decay inseparable to earthly institutions is clearly attached to it, and if its mortality be not hastened by the energy and patriotism of its intended victims, it must die off, exhausted by the intolerable pressure of its own burdens. . "The whole kingdom is now arrayed against it, and possessed as it is, with but the shadow of prosperity, in public opinion its whole strength consists. . "The manifestation of Public feeling concentrated upon a point of no ordinary interest and importance, calls, imperatively calls for equal Representation in the Commons House of Parliament. . "Manchester, the second town in magnitude in the Kingdom is at this moment nothing but a grand hive of slaves, the honey of whose labours is eternally sucked by the harpies of corruption." . #mcr #mcruk #salford #peterloo #mcrhistory #prideofmcr #manchester #mcrheritage #manchesterpast #peterloomassacre #manchesterhistory #prideofmanchester #manchestermemories #manchesterobsessed #manchesterlife #mcr_collective #exploremcr #mcr_follow #welovemcr #bestofmcr #wearemcr #thisismcr #igersmcr #mcruk

@prideofmcr Exactly 200 years ago, at 13:50 on 16th August 1819, Manchester magistrates ordered the unarmed and peaceful 60,000 strong crowd at Peterloo be dispersed by 120 cavalrymen of the Manchester & Salford Yeomanry (a volunteer regiment of publicans, shopkeepers and tradesmen), backed by 600 men of the 15th King's Hussars, 400 heavy-handed special constables, 400 men of Cheshire Yeomanry, several hundred foot soldiers and a Royal Horse Artillery unit with two huge guns. . As the cavalry galloped towards St. Peter's Fields (the area in front of @mcr_central), 2 year old WILLIAM FILDES was knocked out of his mother's arms and killed in front of their house on Cooper Street/Kennedy Street (home to @cityarmsmcr, @thevineinn, @porky_pig_carvery and @salutwines). . On reaching the protest, the cavalry, lead by Tory politician and Manchester mill owner Hugh Hornby Birley, then charged the crowd, trampling to death JAMES CROMPTON (Barton-upon-Irwell), before raising their sabres and slashing to death MARGARET DOWNES (Manchester), EDMUND and WILLIAM DAWSON (Saddleworth), JOHN ASHTON (Chadderton), and Waterloo-veteran JOHN LEES (Oldham). . THOMAS BUCKLEY (Chadderton) was both sabred and stabbed with a bayonet, whilst WILLIAM BRADSHAW (Bury) and JOSHUA WHITWORTH were shot dead, . ARTHUR NEIL of Pigeon Street (behind The Jolly Angler) was crushed by the dispersing crowd and MARTHA PARTINGTON (Eccles) was killed after being thrown into a cellar. . Special constables JOHN ASHWORTH and WILLIAM EVANS were trampled by the cavalry whilst their colleague, ROBERT CAMPBELL, was killed by an angry mob, possibly in retaliation for the death of mother of seven, SARAH JONES of 96 Silk Street, Salford, who was battered by a truncheon. . Pregnant mother of six, MARY HEYS (Manchester), who was trampled by the cavalry, and JOHN RHODES (Hopwood), who was slashed in the head, died of their injuries later with Manchester magistrates covering up their involvement by recording "natural deaths". . #mcr #peterloo #mcrhistory #manchester #mcrheritage #manchesterpast #peterloomassacre #manchesterhistory #prideofmanchester #manchestermemories #manchesterobsessed #exploremcr #wearemcr #thisismcr #mcruk
