The Peeps

Ancoats: the presence of absence

Dan Dubowitz

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A beautifully illustrated and designed record of the renewal of the Ancoats district of Manchester, one of the first industrial areas in the world
  • Records the creation of The Peeps, fascinating installations which are dotted around the area: walled up spaces where time has not moved
  • Also looks at the creation of The Cutting Room, the first public square inaugurated in the suburb, next to the multi-million pound regeneration of St Peter's Church
  • In a wider sense it also investigates how all modern regeneration projects originate, are worked out and then completed
