Situated in a suburb of Manchester, England this is a story of a co-op store still with meeting rooms above the shop, and the lane itself. Plus other related or not so related history.

Just highlighting a good post from The Shrieking Violet weblog that came out last February. That's just like a minute ago in history. The subject is "Women's Outlook" a Co-Operative Press magazine from 1919 - 1967. Not just recipes, handy hints and knitting they ruffled a few feathers in their time. Not to be confused with any publication from this century.
If you are interested then go here. It has some pictures as well.
To go with this check out Mary Stott (1907-2002), an editor of that magazine, and later with The Guardian. It's at Radical Manchester.
