Bradford in 50 Buildings Book
From the time when it controlled the world’s worsted cloth industry to its current status as a melting pot of different cultures, Bradford has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the rich Victorian architecture that has shaped this west Yorkshire city once known to the world as 'Worstedopolis'.
Bradford in 50 Buildings explores the history of this vibrant city through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the magnificent City Hall, which opened in 1873 to the design of the talented Lockwood & Mawson, to the impressive and hugely popular National Science and Media Museum, this unique study celebrates Bradford's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local author and architectural historian Dr George Sheeran guides the reader on a tour of the city’s historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
