I was very interested to read this film review, https://beetleypete.com/2021/04/10/film-review-peterloo-2018/, having written a fictional series set in the Black Country in the 1900s that describes just such conditions for the poor workers on whose backs was born the industrial revolution. If my memory serves me correctly, the Manchester Free Trades Hall is built on the site of the Peterloo Massacre and was a place targeted by the suffragettes, bombed I think, just before the outbreak of WW1. I find it hard now to admire the grand mansions of the wealthy mill and factory owners, knowing the suffering on which they were built.
If you’re interested in following another working-class family through their lives in the 1900s, my series http://mybook.to/ChainmakersSeries tells of the struggle to win a legal minimum wage for women chainmakers – they fought for and won tuppence ha-penny an hour – and the battle for universal suffrage (all men and women over the age of twenty-one) and a long, hard battle it was. Prepare to be shocked in more ways than one – the lack of women’s rights and the means taken to assure them. The White Slaves of England was not a label given to these women lightly but was one they were determined to shake off.
I shall look out for Peterloo should the film be shown again, so thank you for posting about it.
