- In these days of mass transport, when Continental Europe, the Greek islands, the vast land mass of Australia and even the far-flung North and South islands of New Zealand have become holiday destinations, it hardly seems possible that travel between two northern cities, little more than 40 miles or so distant, and each of major importance to burgeoning Victorian capitalist society, could have been regarded as something of an adventure taking some two days to accomplish.
- Manchester had been in the very forefront of railway development: witness the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester line in 1830, followed closely by connections to Birmingham and then London, via the Lancashire town of Warrington. Thus was enabled a rail journey, albeit a somewhat tedious one, to be made between the commercial centre of the country'' cotton industry and its Capital city.
