Wakefield is an industrial town in West Yorkshire, on the very edge of the Pennines. It borders the textile towns to the west and the coal mining villages to the south and east, and from the nineteenth century its wealth was firmly based in the textiles and grain processing industries. Paul Dawson's new book brings together memories of the town over the last sixty or seventy years. Different themes are explored: church and chapel, education, leisure and recreation, wartime, business and industry, and growing up. These reminiscences are illustrated with a wide range of photographs, drawings and adverts.
