More than a dozen weavers and workers butchered by the militia in August 1819. Mere children abducted from the Manchester streets in the so-called Swinging Sixties. An innocent Irishman knifed to death by the hangman with a pen-knife. A murder rate of one a week off Deansgate in the Victorian era. Hyman Perdovich murdering his work foreman in cold blood and then calmly handing himself in at the cop shop.

This is a dangerous walk. Best stay at hone with the curtains drawn and the door locked.
