Description

Manchester was one of the first cities in Britain to get a railway. The mill owners wanted an efficient method of transporting their cloth to Liverpool, and the roads and canal systems were inadequate for their needs. The Liverpool and Manchester Railway opened in 1830, to transport passengers and freight between these two important industrial centres. As a result, trade grew rapidly and the population of Manchester expanded.
