Online exhibition now live!

We’re very excited about our new online exhibition which goes live today! Don’t worry if you couldn’t make it to the Library to see our popular exhibition ‘Who do you think they were: The story of a Manchester family’ last year, because it’s now on the website in its entirety and is well worth a look.

The Leech family of Manchester and Ashton wrote diaries and collected material about themselves and their family lives for nearly two hundred years. The extraordinary archive resulting from this activity is now held at the Library, and the exhibition introduces the main characters and offers a look at some of the highlights of the collection.

    So pleased to see progress on the Leech diaries which we saw when we last came up to Manchester & visited Chethams in 2005/6.
    As they are part of my wife’s family(Ruth nee Leech) we were treated to a very interesting hour or so by the curator. It was great to see them all together and the use being made of them, not least for social history etc by some of the University students.
