This book raises awareness of the wide range and the varied character of the historic buildings which make up the Northern Quarter's townscape, and the forces and trends which contributed to its appearance. It also shows how the area has evolved over the last two and a half centuries, forming the historic backdrop to everyday life in a particularly vibrant and culturally distinctive quarter of the city.

The book will have a broad appeal, both to the established urban community and to those with an interest in the city of Manchester and its buildings.
