District 11 within walking distance of central Manchester, which each Catholic parish did every Whit Friday, a teeming meandering of little terraced streets surrounding a coal mine [with the deepest pit shaft in Britain] and a steel wireworks. Heavy industry  maintained by an indigenous working class with a fiercely socialist heart [until it was dispersed to the badlands of Wythenshaw or Langley or Whitefield or Hattersley where there was and is absolutely no danger of any heavy industry whatsoever] and a scattering of lively exuberant street schools amongst the busy pubs, library, shops, churches of all denominations, and a market [still there] that had magical hotdogs.
