|The History and Annals of Blackley and Neighbourhood - Philip Wentworth|
Condition Good Plus
Published for the author by John Bagot Ltd, Middleton 1892
An extremely scarce volume on the village of Blackley, now within the area of Greater Manchester.
"In Blackley and its neighbourhood most of the people are related to each other and there prevails almost everywhere a family sensitiveness that makes plain speaking dangerous insomuch that the saying goes 'If you scratch one, twenty bleed.' "
I wonder to what degree this factor remains over 100 years later?
