Wakefield It's Times & It's Peoples

ByCharlie Walker

Throughout, the volume charts day to day life from the 1930s to the 1960s, and details what family and social life was all about, when men were men, and the women knew it. If you've ever wondered what it was really like to live in an old back to back terrace house with rising damp on every wall, and only the bare necessities of life, with bed-bugs and cockroaches for company, all is revealed. The author looks at some of the old industries, at the working conditions in the brick works, textile mills, and the coal mines. Attention is also paid to the great pioneers of the time. The founders of Asda, The Double Two and many other well-known companies that were in existence at the time. Whether you were born, live or work in Wakefield. this book will give you an idea of how the city became what it is today, and perhaps it is also a window on where it is going in the future!.
