Growing up in Manchester, 1880-1980 – Exhibition

When Dr Michala Hulme bought an old suitcase at an auction containing the personal letters of former Manchester schoolteacher, Ellen Retallack (1855-1958), it became the inspiration for her latest exhibition. Growing up in Manchester is a photography exhibition showcasing what life was like for children growing up in Manchester and its suburbs, 1880-1980. The photographs are unique as most are donations from the public and haven’t been displayed before. The exhibition will also tell the story of Ellen through her photographs and letters, including correspondence from C.P. Scott and his children.

The exhibition is a joint collaboration between Dr Michala Hulme, the people of Manchester and students from the University of Birmingham.
