Paperback. A comprehensive book on Strangeways executions. For nearly 100yrs. the tolling of the Strangeways Prison bell told the citizens of Manchester that another murderer had been hanged. Sometimes it caused protest. More often it was cause for rejoicing as another villain was despatched to hell. The author recounts the harrowing, brutal and frequently tragic stories of those who were led to the Strangeways scaffold. Included in this collection : Charles Cowle (a teenager who murdered a 6yr. old girl); Mary Ann Britland (the Lancashire poisoner); George Rice (Manchester's one-eyed monster); Margaret 'Bill' Allen (Rawenstall's lesbian killer); John Horner (the child killer) + much, much more. Illus. 256pp. p/back Lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. in protective cover.
