Waiting for the Angel - A Gorton Novel

 

By Stephen Sayers

 

ISBN-10: 1533592942

ISBN-13: 978-1533592941

 

 

 

 

In the 1950s, Gorton was a crowded working class area of Manchester made up of terraced houses, factories, locomotive sheds, canals, railway lines, greyhound and speedway tracks, public houses, corner shops, scrap yards, churches and schools, as well as Belle Vue – one of the biggest zoological and pleasure gardens in England. It had a way of life that is now long gone, but its influences remain, not only in the lives of those people who remember it, but also in the rich sense of humour, tragedy and benevolence that still survives in the area.
