Picturesque Views of Huddersfield (c.1900)

Picturesque Views of Huddersfield, also titled "The New Photographic View Album of Huddersfield", is an undated collection of 20 photographs which appear to have been taken in the 1890s.

The publication date of the collection is unknown, but is suspected to sometime around 1900. Photographs showing the tramlines are prior to electrification in 1900/1901 and the final photograph of Lockwood Viaduct possibly shows Victoria Tower under construction in the late 1890s.[1]

The photographs are uncredited, but may have been taken by the publisher, Henry Graham Glen of Wortley, Leeds.

Due to the age of the photographs and the lack of a credit for the photographer(s), it is assumed that they are now in the Public Domain.[2]

Notes and References

  1. No advertisements or notices for the book have been located in contemporary newspapers archives up to 1900, which may indicate a publication date in the early 1900s.
  2. The photographs certainly pre-date the 1911 Copyright Act, and at most would have been protected by copyright for 50 years from the year in which they were taken.
