A strange on one this, a 12X9 folder produces (undated) by Calderdale Museums Service. Entrance to the Hall was Adults 15P and Children 8P so after 1971 but I suspect not long after, the telephone number was 52246.

This consists of a folder with loose pages (A4) 32 pages in all printed on glossy paper, there is no index so I can’t tell if any pages are missing. The cover is a bit dusty but the inserts are as new, well illustrated.

The piece on Ann Lister fails to mention her sexuality.

Pre-Digital Photography

Before we were bombarded with digital images, photographers had to think about their photographs, they could not take 5000 shots and pick out the one that looked better than the rest. So it is more difficult to choose which photos to use to illustrate a book of thought out photographs. There is still something to be beneficial from looking at these photograph collections.

The History of Batley 1800-1974 by Malcolm H. Haigh

The History of Batley 1800 -1974 by Malcolm H Haigh in 1978 reprinted twice but still hard to find. The fact the Malcolm was a journalist must have contributed to the fact that this is a fantastically readable book. I am a great fan of local history books but some are badly written, as not everybody however they love local history are good authors which is why I have not tried to write one myself. I have a copy without d.j. £25.00

The History of Batley 1800-1974 by Malcolm H. Haigh

Malcolm displays his journalistic skills in writing this incredibly readable book. This book is essential in any Batley collection. The price below includes UK P&P


Published by Max Parrish in 1957. 188 pages with index. Theodore Cooke Taylor was more than a Woollen Manufacturer. A Liberal MP who fought the Chinese Opium Trade. He was a pioneer, and probably the most successful exponent of profit sharing in industry. Still at his desk at the age of 102.

Batley & District Hospital Bazaar Souvenir Handbook 1926

Pretty tatty copy, but where else would you find one. 104 pages with a bit of history and of a few people and buildings, the old, present and proposed hospitals. But to me the greatest interest is in the local advertisements (there are a number of national adverts). The best illustration to me though was the Batley Co-op. SOLD
