Cast bronze plaque commemorating Henry Hunt, sculpted by John Cassidy.
This cast bronze wall plaque commemorates the role of Henry Hunt in the Peterloo Massacre. In 1842, a thirty foot monument to the memory of Hunt and the Peterloo victims was erected in the Round Chapel Cemetery on Every Street, Ancoats. It was dismantled in 1888 when it became unsafe. In 1908, the Manchester sculptor, John Cassidy, was commissioned to design this plaque as a replacement. The plaque hung in the Manchester Reform Club on King Street until 1987.
