Over the years, the history of Manchester United has been well documented. This publication, however, is a Manchester United history book with a difference. It takes you beyond the pages of any previous publication, and indeed, beyond the walls of the club's excellent museum situated within the bowels of Old Trafford itself. It takes you out onto the streets of Manchester and beyond. You will discover the exact location where the original railway workers kicked that first ball in earnest on North Road, Newton Heath. This book follows them from their beginnings at Clayton all the way through to Old Trafford today. Ever wondered what the connection between Manchester United and Bramhall Hall is? Do you know the exact location where the Professional Footballers Association was founded? Where does the first captain of Manchester United to lift a major trophy lie at rest? The answers are to be found in this book, which takes you on the United Tour of Manchester. Who knows what you will discover?
