?Science, Industry and Society?
Manchester has always been a meeting place for scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs. Together, their ideas and inventions have transformed the way we live and work.
From the first true canal, to the first test tube baby from discoveries of electrons, protons and neutrons, to the splitting of the atom Manchester has always been at the forefront of science.
Manchester?s industrial heritage started with the cotton trade and boomed in the Industrial revolution. The result was the rapid spread of cotton mills throughout Manchester itself and in the surrounding towns. To these must be added bleach works, textile print works, and the engineering workshops and foundries, all serving the cotton industry. During the mid-19th century Manchester grew to become the centre of Lancashire's cotton industry and was dubbed "Cottonopolis".
Manchester's population exploded as people moved from the surrounding countryside, and from other parts of the British Isles, into the city seeking new opportunities. Particularly large numbers also came from Ireland and it is estimated that about 35% of the population of Manchester and Salford has at least some Irish ancestry. Large numbers of immigrants later came to Manchester from Central and Eastern Europe. To these groups may be added (in later years) Levantines (involved in the Egyptian cotton trade), Germans and Italians. By the end of the 19th century, Manchester was a very cosmopolitan place.
