JOURNAL Growing Up in the North West
Manchester Region History Review

Detailed Description

The one hundred years covered by this issue saw perhaps the most rapid and significant changes in the experience of childhood in our history. From being ‘seen and not heard’ to vociferously making their presence felt, this issue highlights just some of the ways in which growing up was transformed for children and young people in our region.  

Articles include:
• ‘The lives and the souls of the children’: The Band of Hope in the North West
• Street Arabs and urban waifs in the northern novels of Silas K. Hocking
• Child performers in the theatre
• Social dancing in 1930s’ Lakeland
• Teen ‘angst’ in the Manchester Evening News
• Juke boxes, coffee bars & Americanization
