Salford's history is long and vibrant, although it wasn't given city status until 1926. It was the heartland of the Industrial Revolution and became famous for its silk and cloths. The building of the Manchester Ship Canal and the opening of the Salford Docks brought considerable employment to the area for almost a century.After a period of decline during the 1960s and '70s, the city has recently undergone another revolution with the exciting development of the Lowry Centre and surrounding docklands, with these once derelict mills being converted into artist studios and modern apartment complexes. It is home to one of the country's most vibrant universities, Salford University, as well as numerous successful sports clubs and facilities. "Salford Past" is a pictorial history chronicling the dramatic changes the city has undergone throughout the decades. This is a unique collection of evocative images, many never previously published, from the archives of the "Manchester Evening News".
