This chapter provides an overview of the geographical location of where The Boys lived. It starts by examining the history of Bradford's textile trade, as the Pakistani migrants arrived in Bradford originally to work in the textile mills. However, due to the demise of the textile industry in the 1970s and 1980s, many of the city's migrants were left in a difficult financial situation. The young men in the study reside in an area of Bradford called Manningham, and the chapter examines the historical circumstances which contributed to the characteristics of this district. It also explores the reasons why so many Pakistanis sought to live there even though the early Pakistani community faced a number of concerning issues when settling there, such as racism.
