Centenary City Map & Pankhurst Pinning Parties!

100 years after (some) women and all men won the right to vote, we’re creating an archive of Manchester’s Vote100 activity. Have you been marking the centenary?  Upload your photos, films, and thoughts to our Manchester; Centenary City map here. 

Follow the link to Manchester; Centenary City Historypin Map

You’ll see this landing page:

if you scroll down, you’ll see the pins that other people have started to upload:

If you click on ‘Expand Map’ to the left, the pins appear on a map of Manchester!

To add a pin, click on ‘Add a pin’, which is here:

You’ll need to create an account to add a pin, but it’s very simple to do.  You can sign in through facebook if that’s easier.  Then just follow the instructions!

Et voila! Your picture has been added to the Centenary City Historypin and archive. Don’t forget to let us know how we can use the image. You never know, you might turn up in our exhibition!
