Samuel Oldknow at Town Hall

Whilst at The Manchester Histories Fair at Manchester Town Hall Samuel was invited by Didsbury Councillor Andrew Taylor to visit the Inner Courtyard.  Later on he was to meet Queen Victoria to discuss the meteoric rise of the entrepreneur.  The Queen didn't think there was a credible challenge to the landed gentry and commented, "It is all a question of breeding my dear".
