This fascinating collection of over 200 photographs illustrates some of the historical developments which have shaped the town of Brighouse and its surrounding communities. The Industrial Revolution and the coming of the Canal Age brought new prosperity to the area, and this book describes the effects of industrialisation on the town and the people who helped to bring it about, as well as the industries themselves. Informative and detailed captions bring additional colour to the images, exploring the buildings, transport and shops of Brighouse and its surrounding settlements, as well as the close-knit communities which have formed the heart of the area. This book will rekindle fond memories of the past for anyone who has lived or worked in Brighouse, and will delight those who want to find out more about the colourful history of the town.
