In the morning we will visit the Science and Industry Museum (MOSI), Liverpool Road, Manchester, for a curator led tour. MOSI is within walking distance of The John Rylands Library on Deansgate.

We will see photographs and material from the archives at both these venues; exhibits at MOSI are housed in the 1830 warehouse on the site of the world’s first passenger railway station.  There is a cafeteria at the museum. 

In the afternoon we will have a tour of the archives at the magnificent neo-gothic John Rylands Library led by the curator who will show us a wide range of photographs from their collection.
