The City of Salford lies within the metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester in the north west of England and lies in a meander of the River Irwell which forms part of its boundary with the City of Manchester to the east. Salford grew to become a major factory during the 18th and 19th centuries specialising on cotton and silk spinning in the local mills which attracted many families which in turn enhanced the economy of the city. Additionally, Salford Docks was an important dock on the Manchester Ship Canal, which connected Manchester to the Mersey Estuary.
The area that was home to Salford Docks fell into disrepair following the demise of the docks. However, following a period of regeneration the area, now known as Salford Quays, is home to many hotels, apartments, museums, bars and restaurants. Some of the more well known inhabitants of Salford Quays are the MediaCityUK, home of the BBC and The Lowry Centre which is a gallery and theatre centre. Its name taken from the prominent early 20th century artist L.S. Lowry, who lived and worked in Salford and its surrounding areas for more than 40 years.
Notable people from Salford include Emmeline Pankhurst who was one of the founders of the suffragette movement.
