Abstract

In Manchester, in June, 1824, one Hugh Pritchard publicly sold his wife, aged 26, for 3s. Earlier in the year there had been labour riots because the employers insisted on increasing hours of work from eleven to twelve a day. Earlier still, in February, the treadmill was introduced into the New Bailey Prison.
