Following the runaway success of Aspects of Wakefield 1, Wharncliffe Books are delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of Aspects of Wakefield 2. Once more Kate Taylor has drawn together a unique and previously unpublished collection of observations on the history and development of the City.

In this volume, among other things, we are introduced to Wakefield by Gaslight, the Wakefield Rifle Volunters and the curious business of Dyeing for Wakefield. From a fascinating collection of Wakefield Firsts, we travel on to Portobello, the first Council Estate in the City. Penetrating views of the development of Maternity Services, and the Hollin Hall Tramway, keep company with the shops of Outwood and the development of West Parade Methodist Church.

All this and more makes a fascinating book which cannot help but enthrall everyone with an interest in the history of Wakefield.
