This wonderful new book by local author Malcolm Hitt and local historian Gary Firth, takes a comparative peep into how Titus Salt's model industrial village has changed since acquiring the status of a World Heritage site.
Images are brought together to compare and contrast changing modes of transport, employment, fashion, retailing and leisure as well as showing change from Victorian times to the new millennium in the housing and public buildings of Saltaire's historic core. The past and present photographs of Saltaire in this book are due largely to the dynamism and entrepreneurial vision shared by both Salt and Silver in this beautiful and ordered model village.
One found it, the other has helped to preserve it. Saltaire Through Time will bring back fond memories of yesteryear for residents new and old, and for all those who love to visit this part of Yorkshire.
