Synopsis
A century after opening in 1889, Dewsbury Town Hall became the focal point of a new Market Place pedestrianisation scheme. The splendid building symbolises Dewsbury's great days as the centre of the West Riding's Heavy Woollen district. Vast quantities of rags were once brought to the town for sorting, auctioning and recycling into inexpensive heavy woollen goods. On these activities was Dewsbury's fame and fortune based. Norman Ellis, author of a dozen other local history books, has used over 200 illustrations form this unique collection of Dewsbury postcards and ephemera to produce this book. It explains how the town rose to prominence, and chronicles in particular the story of Dewsbury's development throughout the twentieth century.
