In this collection bite we'll be taking a closer look at the work of Manchester's Wood Street Mission charity, and the summer trips that began in the 1800s for children living in poverty.
Join us to find out more about these seaside excursions through the images and promotional material, and see how this escape from Manchester's industrial landscape helped improve quality of life for those in desperate need.
Free. No need to book, just turn up.
