An unofficial history: the launch of our Toastrack publication

The launch of a new publication from Manchester Modernist Society about Manchester’s landmark building – the Toastrack.


The Toastrack, also known as the Domestic & Trades College, or the Hollings Faculty of Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), now stands empty.

As MMU prepared to relocate to the city centre, Manchester Modernist Society spent a year at the Toastrack and delved into the archives; architecture, fashion, and a mysterious skeleton all lurk within.
