From Irish people escaping the Great Famine in the 19th century, to Jewish families fleeing from persecution in Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries Cheetham Hill has become a safe haven and home for those looking for a better life. One of whom was a certain Michael Marks who, along with Thomas Spencer, opened the first Marks and Spencer store on Cheetham Hill Road in 1893. It was also home to the famous Boddingtons Brewery and the infamous Strangeways prison. Whatever your connection to this thriving and eclectic part of Manchester, this beautifully presented original bus blind deserves a place on your wall.
A little more compact in size than the standard bus blinds at 71cm wide, this 60s original is printed on an early tyvek type material, giving an incredibly crisp finish with a slight gloss shine to the white lettering. It is in excellent condition for its age.
