Salford is a city in North West England. It is sited in a meander of the River Irwell, which forms in part its boundary with the city of Manchester to the east. Salford forms the local government district of the City of Salford, which is administered from Swinton. Salford became a major factory town and inland port during the 18th and 19th centuries. Cotton and silk spinning and weaving in local mills attracted an influx of families and provided Salford with a strong economy. Today, Salford has become a centre of higher education, home to the University of Salford, and has seen several firsts, including the world's first unconditionally free public library, and the first street in the world to be lit by gas, Chapel Street in 1806.
