  1. Love the work of this author and the sound of this book, but can’t afford to buy it. Will there be paperback/cheaper editions coming out?

    • Hi Marie, you can get the new edition of the book for £7.99, or £6.39 if you are able to order it online via Amazon. This is a smaller sized paperback, and apart from the insertion of one new paragraph on the case of Billy Willan, the text and photographs are exactly the same as the first edition. Best wishes,
      Andy

  2. great research on a forgotten subject

  3. […] If you want to know more about the Scuttlers, check Andrew Davies book ‘The Gangs Of Manchester’. […]

  4. Hi andrew
    I was wondering if you had any information on William Henry Brooks, the gang leader on the cover of the book.

    • There is brief biography in chapter 17 of the book (“King of the Scuttlers”). I compiled this from newspaper reports detailing his appearances before Salford magistrates, and the ancestry website, which enabled me to track him to Durham Street in the Greengate district of Salford in the 1891 census. Cheers, Andy

      • Thanks Andrew
        Is there any reason in particular why William Henry Brooks was chosen as the central face for the cover of the book

      • Hello Jeff,
        The press reports I found suggest that he had more of a reputation that the other young men photographed alongside him, so it seemed to make sense to put him in the middle. Best wishes,
        Andy

  5. Cheers Andrew
