Scope and Content

Extraordinary issue of the Strines Journal, celebrating the marriage of Joel Wainwright and Ellen, youngest daughter of John Wild esq. of Oldham, on 1 May 1856.

According to Joel Wainwright, Memories of Marple (1899), p. 97, the 'wedding number' of the Strines Journal was lent out, and when the volume came to be bound, it could not be found, and 'it has only just now turned up'.
