The Story of Leeds
This new history of Leeds covers all the main political, social and economic developments of the city: The Harrying of the North devastated the surrounding area in 1069: the Civil War saw a battle fought in the town itself: cholera and typhus epidemics raged in the nineteenth century: the building of the Middleton Railway in 1758 established the oldest railway in the world: and Richard Oastler, the Factory King, launched the campaign for the Ten Hour Bill in the Leeds Mercury. Due emphasis is given to the place of the wool textile industry, the principal industry until the twentieth century. The story is brought right up to date, as are recent changes in the townscape. An intriguing look at this great city’:s remarkable history.
