#SkywatchFriday: evening commute with an 18C #vegetarian

The weekend is here! The Joseph Brotherton statue- he was a pioneering vegetarian in the 18th & 19th centuries- by the River Irwell on my walk home tonight In 1805 he joined the Salford Swedenborgian Church. The church, led by William Cowherd, was renamed the Bible Christian Church in 1809. In 1816 Cowherd died, and Brotherton became a minister. The church required abstention from the eating of meat or drinking of alcohol. In 1812 Martha Brotherton was the author of Vegetable Cookery, an early vegetarian cookbook.

Skywatch Friday.
