Exhibition: Queues, Clogs & Redemption Salford
Wood Street Mission has been helping children and families living below the poverty line in Manchester and Salford since Victorian times.
This exhibition looks at the work of Wood Street Mission from the days of 'rescuing' street children in the nineteenth century, sending tens of thousands to the seaside in the twentieth, and running a city gym for deprived teenagers and professionals working in the city in the 1980s.
These stories are told through panels, historial artefacts and a film featuring former and current service users.
This exhibition is on display in the Bluestairs Community Gallery at Salford Museum & Art Gallery.
