Manchester: Heritage, Firsts And Cultural Highlights

Celebrate Manchester as wall art with this bold and informative print that compiles more than 350 years of Mancunian heritage. 

Discover and celebrate Manchester, the world’s first modern city with this unique print that chronologically traces more than 350 years of Manchester's cultural, scientific, social, musical and industrial highlights.

Besides being home to a formidable pop culture, Manchester is also historically the first modern city, because of its pioneering industrial heritage, many innovations, inventions and cultural breakthroughs. As an example, Manchester is the birthplace of the modern atomic theory, the first programmable computer, the first professional football league, vegetarianism and much more.

The print includes sections on art and literature, science and technology, social and political movements, industry, journalism, women’s rights, pop culture and more. The print also highlights the University of Manchester’s 25 Nobel laureates, alongside key local figures such as L.S. Lowry, John Dalton, Anthony Burgess and Emmeline Pankhurst.

From the city's industrial past to the legendary Sex Pistols' gig, Factory Records and much more. Manchester is one of the greatest cities in the world and this artwork gives you the facts.

    Dirty Old Town

    Celebrate your hometown as wall art with my bold, graphic interpretation of Dirty Old Town. 

    ★★★★★"The background detail is very thoughtful. The stencil effectuated for the main text and the lyrics suggests an element of decay, which was true of Salford in the 1940s and 1950s when the lyrics were written and I was a child of the city. The whole, including the name of the song's creator, creates an evocative and welcome addition to my wall as a constant reminder of where I came from." . Peter B. 

    Ewan MacColl originally wrote Dirty Old Town in 1949, inspired by the rough living conditions he witnessed in Salford at the time. Since then, many people have covered it, including The Dubliners and The Pogues, and even Rod Stewart (before he discovered leopard print pants).

    My print reproduces the original lyrics as sung by Ewan MacColl with Peggy Seeger. 

    I found my love by the gasworks croft / Dreamed a dream by the old canal / Kissed my girl by the factory wall / Dirty Old Town, Dirty Old Town
