Historic England: Bradford : Unique Images from the Archives of Historic England Paperback
Part of the Historic England Series series
This illustrated history portrays one of England's most historically significant cities.
It provides a nostalgic look at Bradford's past and highlights the special character of some of its most important historic sites.
The photographs are taken from the unique Historic England Archive, the nation's record of 12 million photographs, drawings and publications, ranging from the 1850s and the earliest days of photography up to the present day. Historic England: Bradford shows the city as it once was, from its streets and alleyways to the magnificent City Hall and from the impressive neoclassical buildings of Little Germany to the perfectly preserved Victorian planned village of Saltaire.
Bradford was an international centre of textile manufacture, particularly worsted.
Today, it has been transformed into a centre of education and innovation, as well as a burgeoining tourist destination, becoming the first UNESCO City of Film with attractions such as the National Media Museum, Bradford City Park, the Alhambra Theatre and Cartwright Hall.
This book helps you discover the remarkable history of this West Yorkshire city.
