    Profile photo of KEN LAST

    A recent  reference  about this amazing lady on this forum recently sparked a memory of about 1980.   Working in the Manchester hospitals at that time I picked up that  the MRI in applying for permission to knock down a grossly  wreck  of an  old building  discovered it had been the home of Emmaline Pankhurst.  She was of course a Manchester born lady of a family with a long history of social rights agitators. Her grandfather witnessed the Peterloo massacre.  I recall going to see the derelict house and so unimpressed did not take a photo. It lays in the grounds of MRI  on Nelson St. which bridges Oxford Road and Upper Brook St.  Demolition was rejected and the house restored into the “Pankhurst Centre” and opened in the late 80″s by Barbara Castle   and a grandchild of Emmaline P.  Looking at and inside of the centre on the web  , it does look both interesting and should be some photo opportunities.
