This fascinating collection of more than 200 photographs has been compiled from the extensive photo-archives of the Greater Manchester Police Museum. Detailed captions provide valuable information about the history of policing in Manchester and about the social history of the city itself, including descriptions of wartime Manchester, the arrest of suffragettes, events, occasions and many individual cases and examples of detective work. The progression of police vehicles throughout the twentieth century is also depicted, and a special chapter describes the use of dogs and horses by the Greater Manchester Police. This valuable volume is sure to appeal to anyone who has lived in Manchester, either on the right or the wrong side of the law!
The photographs contained within this book form part of the collection held at Greater Manchester Police Museum. Duncan Broady has been the Curator of the Museum since 1981. David Tetlow has been the Museum Officer since 2000.
