We think Manchester is amazing. Second only to London in economic terms, it does however have the honour of being the world's first industrialised city. Although it might be second in terms of boring old money it is definitely first in the worlds of sport and music, which is all that really matters. Manchester was the first place to split an atom, among many other scientific firsts.
As the saying goes: "What Manchester does today, the rest of the world does tomorrow". If that isn't the definition of leadership I don't know what is. From its start as a Roman settlement to its "astonishing expansion" at the turn of the 19th century to become a major textile town during the Industrial Revolution Manchester has been leading from the front.
By 1835 "Manchester was without challenge the first and greatest industrial city in the world". Companies originally making machines for the cotton industry branched out into general manufacture and developed Manchester's engineering expertise. The chemical industry got its start by producing bleaches and dyes for textiles. Banking and insurance firms developed as support for the city's factories.
Manchester has provided commercial leadership in so many ways:
Not to mention all the cultural aspects of the great city! Who wouldn't want to be a part of all this?.
