The Manchester Astronomical Society in 1910-1911

From Nature in 1912 there is a report on the Manchester Astronomical Society which shows there is a vigorous interest in astronomy in the Manchester district. The membership for 1910-1911 was 128, as compared to 98 in 1903-1904, and an average attendance at the meetings was 72

Many interesting papers were discussed by lecturers including Father Corrie and Mr T Thorp. On Alternate Wednesdays the Godlee Observatory is open to members for practical work.
