About this title:

Synopsis: By the late nineteenth century, charges imposed on Manchester companies for the use of Liverpool's docks and the connecting railway had created an atmosphere of resentment within the business community. The Manchester Ship Canal was to play a major part in the city's regeneration following the depression of the 1870s, but it took a lengthy battle for the scheme to gain the backing of Parliament and for construction to begin in 1887. In this two-volume work of 1907, Sir Bosdin Leech (1836-1912) traces the canal's conception, planning and construction. Volume 1 discusses the historical and economic factors that led to the creation of the waterway, as well as the bitter political fight to make it a reality. Volume 2 begins with the project's backers having finally raised the capital necessary to begin construction. The work includes a large amount of illustrative content, enhancing the light shed on the landscape and notable personalities of Manchester at that time.

Book Description: This two-volume work of 1907 discusses the conception and construction of the Manchester Ship Canal, a 36-mile inland waterway linking two major cities of northern England. Its author traces the historical and economic factors which first led to the canal's proposal, all the way through to its completion in 1893.
