Remembering Peterloo


On this day in 1819, Manchester established its place in the story of radicalism and reform in this country through the terrible events of the Peterloo Massacre, depicted in this hand-coloured print.

The Library holds many items of interest to the student of radical political history in the North West. If this is your field of interest, get in touch! We would be delighted to hear from you.
