Talk 24, Chronology of Huddersfield

Scope and Content

2 sections of text. The numbering sequence is divided between the two. Not always sequential. 100 slides listed ( stored in 1 large grey slide tray). The early slide numbering appears to be correct, however, the later numbering isn't. It's possible that this latter section belongs to another (similar?) talk. The text starts with the last ice age and goes through to approx 1900. Lists major events and people - canal age, railways, public transport, turnpikes, Cloth Hall, hotels, Ramsden family, Richard Oastler etc.
