May the 18th 1980 Ian Curtis the singer of Joy Division took his
own life in the Kitchen of the house he lived in with his wife Debbie at
77 Barton Street.
Debbie Curtis then sold the house and many of its contents to a neighbour Dorothy Smith who then ran it as a B and B.
In 1996 the table was passed to Dorothy's Daughter Vicky Morgan when she got married and set up home in Macclesfield.
December 2005 the Morgan's were redecorating and felt that the table no
longer fitted in with their own home. They offered the table back to
the family and contacted them via Marco of Joy Division Central.
the filming of Control taking place in Barton Street and Natalie Curtis
arranging the props the table was offered but was declined.
Curtis, Ian and Debbie's daughter was then going to take the table for
her own flat but in the end decided to have one of her mums instead
which belonged to her Grandmother.
At that point it went on Ebay and I travelled to Macclesfield after winning the bid.
Control then went on general release and the Legend Grew.
with the Table are confirmation of authenticity from Natalie Curtis,
Debbie Curtis, Marco from Joy Division Central and Vicky Morgan. Also
there is a four page print from a web site with pics taken inside 77
Barton Street when it was a B and B and a picture of Dorothy Smith.
