"And when in Peter Street I call, I'll s**t upon the Free Trade Hall":- The Anti-Corn Law League built a temporary timber pavilion in 1840 to hold large public meetings because the other spaces in Manchester were not big enough. Its brick replacement was built in 1842. The current building was opened in 1856.

A poster advertising an ACLL Bazaar to be held at Free Trade Hall in Manchester on Oct. 15th (probably 1845). Supporters would donate goods which would be sold to make money for the ACLL. The League also had their own merchandise for sale such as buttons, badges, envelopes, books, and perhaps even china wear like plates and figurines.
