Ship canal cruet set - Proud to be a Manc

+ Full Screen Image

"Proud to be a Manc" ...we built the canal to avoid the taxes from Liverpool! As a "dyed in the cotton" (!?) Mancunian, I'm especially proud to remember the contribution my people made to anti-slavey at the time.

This is a label written by a visitor to Manchester Art Gallery in response to the Revealing Histories: Remembering Slavery Gallery Trail of objects on display that are linked to the transatlantic slave trade.
