This fascinating collection of over 180 photographs highlights some of the changes and developments that have taken place in Failsworth over the past 150 years. This period has seen the area change dramatically, from a small community in which villagers supported themselves, through farming and handloom weaving, to an industrial township producing cotton, silk and the hats for which Failsworth is famous. Detailed captions bring colour to each photograph and provide a valuable insight into life in the town. Every aspect of Failsworth is explored, from buildings and local events through to the lives of its residents at work, rest and play. This book will serve as a touching reminder of the past, awakening memories of Failsworth as it once was, and will delight anyone interested in this proud and close-knit community.About the Author:
