The CENTRAL (Kayes’) COLLEGE (70 New North Road Huddersfield) – Prospectus. Undated but there is a programme from a variety concert put on by the students in 1942 along with a Fees leaflet. This is a 40 page very well illustrated booklet with lots of photo’s of the students. £10.00
One Hundred Years of Local History – The Bradford Historical and Antiquarian Society 1878-1978 by J Reynold and WF Bains. 42 pages with a few illustrations. Interestingly some time in the past a previous owner has made a “correction” on the title page. He/she has crossed out “Local” from the title and written “Society” below. I can understand the frustration as I thought the title ambiguous before I noticed this touch of what I expect is criticism from a disappointed owner. £5.00
