New York library reveals 1898 Urmston
Topic posted by MisterT ... dated:06 July 2012
I've come across a publication from 1898 on the American Libraries archive of all places on the history of Urmston, Flixton and Davyhulme. There's some interesting bits and pieces in there, has anybody seen this?

It is a fair price, condition is everything. I have seen this book sell for around twice that but in a better quality.

I've just spotted an original 1898 hardback copy of this book for sale if anyone's interested.

There are also reprint copies available, even an option to buy a new softback copy!

It can be downloaded for free and I can only speak as a Mac user. On my iPad and clicking on the left hand options offers to load in iBooks and/or on my Kindle.

This has been available for some time and is still a wonderful source for its local information. Richard Lawson lived in a house on Queens Road, it was called Rostherne.
Look out for another local writer, David Herbert Langton his book "A history of the parish of Flixton" is equally as good. David lived at Morningside on Irlam Road. The home today has been renamed as Durley.

Can this be downloaded for free and if so what is the best way to go about it (download to a PC)? Thanks.
