Aspects of Leeds 3 (Paperback)
Discovering Local History
Following on from the highly successful first two titles in this series, Aspects of Leeds 3 introduces us to over a dozen new observations of the history of Leeds and District. "Aberford Fly Line", the first tracked railway in the world, ran close to "The Lost Village of Lotheron". "The Industrialisation of Burley-in-Wharfedale", and "Leather Industries in Bramley, give insight into working history, while "Listening In" and "Leeds City Varieties" introduce early radio and the saga of "Leeds City Variety Theatre. "Seconds Out" and "Leeds City Football Club 1919 to 1939", give us the sporting scene. Other subjects include, "Leeds Dental School", "The National Institute of Houseworkers", The Thompsons of Golden Acre", "Roundhay Hall" and the life of "Arthur Greenhow Lupton", a citizen of whom any city would be proud. These and many more subjects are clearly described and lavishly illustrated in Aspects of Leeds 3.
