The newspaper cuttings books include articles, photographs and reviews commenting on the activities of the Wood Street Mission. In addition, several cuttings consider the wider context of unemployment and poverty in Manchester. The cuttings books chart the development of the Mission, with emphasis on the benefits it provided to the recipients of relief and on its role within the charitable movement in Manchester as a whole. A recurrent theme is the provision of charity to poor children at Christmas, with photographs of children queuing to receive gifts from Santa Claus.
