Chapter Two provides a descriptive account of the history of Manningham in order that the accounts of contemporary life there can be placed in an appropriately historicised context. One of the themes of the book is the significance of peoples’ understanding of the history of the area within which they live: and of the history of their family and community’s trajectory of settlement there. The chapter provides a brief overview of the historical development of ethnic relations in the UK and the area. As Chapter Two describes both the history and physical properties of Manningham, what emerges is a picture of a once highly desirable area of Victorian development: but one in which commerce and domestic dwelling, elegant villas and very modest working class housing were closely interwoven. The description of the housing stock and the streetscape of Manningham provides the reader with a concrete sense of the terrain in which the contemporary everyday interactions of the residents take place.

Keywords:   migration, changing demography, ‘race relations policies’, resistance to racisms, ‘self-segregation’
