As with many towns in the Manchester area, Oldham become an industrial powerhouse in the letter half of the nineteenth century thanks to the cotton and textile trades. In fact, by the begining of the 20th Century, Oldham was home to ten percent of the world's cotton spindles and a third of the town's workforce was employed in cotton spinning. Annie Kenney was one of those workers and went on to become a major force in the Suffragette movement. So far from being a minor player to its big neighbour Manchester, Oldham is of significant historic importance.
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.
