Pudsey is a small town between the two West Yorkshire conurbations of Leeds and Bradford. In the eighteenth century Pudsey was a community of small farmers and clothiers, but with the advent of steam power came a population explosion. Most of the workers were engaged in the making of woollen cloth, or in the engineering industry. This collection of almost 200 photographs shows the events and people of Pudsey and district from the heyday of the mills to the present. Buildings that have disappeared are pictures, together with vanished lanes and fields. There are people at work, family groups, sports, teams, everyday scenes of shopping, and much grander occasions. This collection of old photographs will entertain and enthral all who know Pudsey, residents and visitors alike.
