The Merchants' Golden Age
Leeds 1700 - 1790
by Steven Burt & Kevin Grady

Providing a very interesting introduction to Leeds in the 1700s. This book, originally published in 1987, packs a lot of information into its 40 pages. With chapters on industry, religion and justice the book aims to give an overview of the time and then provides a list of further reading for those who want to delve a little deeper. Accompanied by a wealth of photographs and sketches to provide context. This is something of an undiscovered gem in the Trust Archives.

A brief but informative look at Leeds in the 1700s. This is the kind of book that you could get caught up in.
