Join journalist, Brian Groom, for a rich and vivid walk through of the history of Britain’s second city (some say first city) through the people who have made it.

About the Book
‘Made in Manchester’ is the tale of England’s second city; a metropolis that exported industry and commerce to all others and whose culture is celebrated globally. Like Brian Groom’s bestselling book, ‘Northerners’, this definitive history expertly combines pacey narrative with vividly drawn portraits.
