Aspects of Huddersfield: Discovering Local History (1999) edited by Isobel Schofield
Aspects of Huddersfield: Discovering Local History (1999) was edited by Isobel Schofield and published in 1999 by Wharncliffe Publishing Limited.
Aspects of Huddersfield, the first in the highly successful Aspects series to feature Huddersfield and district, contains a wealth of pinpoint detail of the history of the town. The story of the coming of the "wireless" to Moorside Edge, which made Huddersfield the radio centre for Northern England, sits alongside the proceedings of the Manorial Court at the Manor of Honley in the 18th and 19th centuries. A fascinating collection of the Legends of the Colne Valley, sits easily with Early Days in the Mill and the Diary of an Unknown. A tale of courtship in the mid 1920s. While the Chartists went "The Whole Hog" in Huddersfield, Mrs Sunderland became the "Yorkshire Queen of Song", a feat still recognised in an annual music festival in her name. Aspects of Huddersfield cannot but enthrall both the dedicated researcher and the general reader with an interest in the town and its environs.
