16 This sense of the North as a residual and subordinated region within Britain—some distance from the levers of power—was an inescapable domain assumption in nearly all the discussions we held (from February 1992) with the different sections of the public in Manchester and Sheffield. Even in Manchester, where, as we will see later, there is a keen sense of the city and region as a metropolitan place (which no other Northern city can seriously claim), this sense of the North, economically and politically, as a peripheral place, now in danger of further marginalisation by the demise of its mass manufacturing basis, was fundamental: so obvious it did not always need to be said.

DIFFERENT FOLKS In Part III of this book, we will develop another important sociological argument—namely, that there are several publics in the cities of the North of England, other than the modern-day professional consumer of cities, on the one hand, and the male industrial workers who have been so dominant historically in these cities, on the other. This truth became absolutely apparent early in a series of street surveys which we undertook in Manchester and Sheffield in the first months of 1992, in our first attempt to identify the different patterns of use of different urban territories in these two conurbations by different sections of the public.

Orwell was upset by the soot and grime deposits emitted from the chimneys of the East End: he does not seem to have visited any of the older manorial homes of Broomhill or Ranmoor, or the new civic buildings of the central city (the Mappin Art Gallery, the Graves Art Gallery and Central Library and the City Hall, all opened in the 1930s) in which the city itself took much pride.
