For the moment, our concern is simply to register the way in which the development of that industry has left an inescapable legacy, a material landscape of canals, railways, warehouses, mills, other industrial buildings (which would be referred to, locally, simply as ‘works’) and related office buildings, which criss-cross, and demarcate the public availability and use of space across, the urban sprawl of Greater Manchester. So also, of course, did the development of Manchester in the nineteenth century involve the construction of a series of celebrated Victorian buildings in the city centre, ranging from the Free Trade Hall, built in 1846, to the elegant Barton Arcade, opened in 1871 (cf.
MATERIAL LANDSCAPES OF THE INDUSTRIAL NORTH It is important to remember that the different cities of the ‘North of England’ occupy quite different, and diverse, geographical locations (very close to the Pennine hills, as in Sheffield and in Bradford, and, to a lesser extent, in Leeds; or to the sea, as in Liverpool and Hull), and that the ‘natural’ features surrounding these cities have had an ongoing influence on the character of local urban industrial development and on local culture: Manchester’s sprawling location has always been much more 20 PAST AND CONTEMPORARY CONTEXTS difficult than that of many other cities in the North to identify in terms of specific or determining natural features: Manchester lies at the middle of the Lancashire plain, an area which resembles a vast amphitheatre.
Being ‘of the North’, in this sense, has always involved a recognition that one is ‘peripheral’. Richard Burns tided his essay on Sheffield, for example, ‘The City as Not London’ (1991): in a country where so many of the powerful political, economic and social institutions (and the governing and ‘chattering’ classes) are centred on London, being provincial and in the North fundamentally structures and defines one’s life experience. The people of the North, in this respect, constitute an example of what Oskar Negt and Alexander Kluge have recently called a ‘counter-public’ (1993), marginalised from the centres of power, and tending, by virtue of this marginalisation, to develop ‘a sense of solidarity and reciprocity rooted in the experience of marginalization or expropriation’ (Hansen 1993:xxxvi).
