A Grim Almanac of Manchester collects together 365 of the darkest tales from Manchester's history - terrifying true tales of riot, assault, murder and crime, of slums, disease, death and disaster.

Compiled by Manchester historian and genealogist Michala Hume, this book is filled with amazing historical horrors ranging from the bizarre - such as the night a poisoned cake caused a sickness to sweep through Ancoats - to the horrific, like the tragic time twenty-three people were crushed to death attempting to escape a fire in the overcrowded Victoria Music Hall.

Some of these incidents were resolved, but many remain mysteries to this day. Generously illustrated, this chronicle is an entertaining and absorbing record of Manchester's grim past. Read on ... if you dare!
