Description

The threshold of a new millennium is an ideal point to review the recent past of Halifax and to examine what effect the last hundred years have had on its citizens. Who could have imagined, as the people of Halifax prepared to celebrate the dawn of the 20th Century, the momentous changes about to take place in industry and commerce, living and working conditions, sport and entertainment. We reflect on these events with the help of people who experienced them and who can share with us a century of triumphs and tragedy, war and peace, hardship and good times. Written and researched by local historian Dr John A Haergreaves, the historical background of these major Twentieth Century changes is clearly explained. Incorporating interviews with local characters and beautifully illustrated with archive film, photographs and modern day footage. Topics Include:- * Cloth and Carpets * Machine Tools, Catseyes and Tumble Dryers * Toffee Town * Markets and Shops * Banks and Building Societies * Tourism and Urban Regeneration * Urban Development and Living Conditions * Recreation and Leisure * The War Years * Education * Transport * Post-War Halifax A delightful record of Bradford's past
