This day, co-hosted by the Manchester Museum, the Whitworth Art Gallery and The University of Manchester, will use the collections and history of all three institutions to explore the lives, contributions and legacies of some of the key figures involved in Manchester's industrial and social development. John Dalton, Joseph Whitworth, John Owens...we see their names on buildings and street signs every day. But who were they? What did they contribute to Manchester's industrial and social development? And how do their contributions to culture and learning impact on us today? This event will explore these themes and more, as part of the 2012 Manchester Histories Festival.
