Blue Plaques of Leeds
The stories behind the famous people and places commemorated for posterity by Blue Plaques
by Dyson & Grady
Have you noticed the blue plaques which have been put on some buildings in Leeds (now sixty-six in number) and wondered why they had been chosen for this honour?
The brief description on the plaque tells you something, but there is a much more fascinating story behind each one, and this book gives you an insight into them. Pictures from the past to the present help to illustrate the scene.
Well-known buildings such as Leeds Infirmary, Kemplay's Academy and Kirkgate Market feature here, and also some interesting personalities such as Montague Burton, Arthur Ransome and Sir Leonard Hutton who all had connections with Leeds. Read about Louis Le Prince who created the first successful moving pictures on Leeds bridge.
The first volume detailing the stories behind the blue plaques.
Colourful, eye-opening and interesting.
