Huddersfield Holidays at Home: Souvenir Handbook (1943)

Huddersfield Holidays at Home was published in 1943.

"Holidays at Home" was a government initiative begun in 1941 to encourage people not to travel to coastal resorts during the war, thereby helping reduce the strain on public transport and limit petrol consumption.

This booklet details the programme of events, many of which took place in Greenhead Park, for the third annual "Huddersfield Holidays at Home" (17 July to 21 August).
