Description

This collection of over 200 archive photographs, most never before published, highlights some of the changes and developments that have taken place in and around the villages of Wyke and Low Moor, near Bradford. Although the in the nineteenth century Bradford flourished as the centre of the Yorkshire woollen trade it also boasted several iron foundries. Perhaps the most prestigious was the Low Moor Company whose works, mineral lines and pits dominated the area for over 150 years; Wyke and Low Moor still bear the scars to this day. Accompanied by supporting text, this pictorial history stands witness to the area's industrial past, its close communities, and their work, worship and play. Compiled by the respective local history groups of Wyke and Low Moor, this volume will delight those who want to know more about the history of these two villages, and evoke memories of a bygone time for those who live there.show more
