About the Author
Wakefield is an industrial town in West Yorkshire, on the very edge of the Pennines. It borders the textile towns to the south and east and from the nineteenth century its wealth was firmly based in the textiles and grain processing industry. Paul Dawson's new book brings together memories of the town over the last sixty or seventy years.

Mercifully I didn't waste any of my own money on this book - it was bought for me as a Christmas present although 'cruel joke' might be a better description. This book is just terrible. All of the photographs are already available online or in other similar books. The content is dire and reads as though the author has never been near Wakefield. It lacks any soul or passion. Please don't waste your money. It is dry, drab, dull, uninspired and uninspiring. If I could give no stars I would.

Having had the misfortune to buy and read Dawson's previous 'Wakefield' book I thought surely the his second attempt cant be as bad... How wrong I was. This book appears as a shameful follow up to the first, merely a publication for publications sake offering little in the way of insightful comment or opinion. A shame really as a good Wakefield book could be really useful to local historians. Oh well...
