Huddersfield's Changing Face

Much of the Huddersfield that was is now involved in clearance areas. In this picture the artist has sketched a corner to the south of the Parish Church where the face of the town is rapidly changing. Enough survives to present a picture of some quaintness, if devoid of architectural grace. The tower of the Parish Church, adding a touch of dignity that might be imparted by a church of the Middle Ages, is little more than a century old.
