222 pages full of stories beyond belief, together with over 270 paintings, contemporary and period photographs, illustrations, documents and maps, based on the township of Chorlton-cum-Hardy. A cocktail of side splitting humour mixed in with a measure of truth.
Dip in and out whenever the mood takes you and soak in the laughter between these pages. At times the truth is stretched to pen a witty yarn and as Mark Twain said, “never let the truth get in the way of a good story”, or did he actually say that?
These mainly Chorlton based tall stories, with snippets of sometimes exaggerated testimony, and tales of disproportionate catastrophes and misfortunes, will appeal to the sense of humour instilled in the minds of every Chorltonian.
