Malcolm, quite rightly reminds me, that we all have books in our bookcases which we have access to. Quite often it is mentioned that an article was found in a book..........perhaps you could tell us which book it was found in.
Can we start and make a list of the books we own.....? Malcolm and I have been digitalising lots of ours, with the hope that they will survive for generations to come.........
If we find we do have books which are fairly rare, perhaps we can come to some arrangement to scan them into the archive........if not at least we know they exist.............
I will start and catalogue some of mine BUT I do have masses.............
OK Jan - Since you put the item onto the forum I'll start. ;D
The Midland Railway - North of Leeds by Peter E Baughan - ISBN0-7153-8852-5
This is the story of the Leeds - Keighley - Skipton - Settle - Carlisle railway and its branch lines.
It is quite detailed about times, dates & places affected by the Railway Mania of the 1840's and the second one in the 1870's.
It contains a full list of stations, date of opening, date of closure, including Acts of Parliament required, and some of the 'conflict of interest' and 'insider dealing' which is clearly illegal today.
From a family history point of view, it even details dates and names of the appointment of staff, address, position appointed to, former occupation, wages in 1846.
The book ends with the decision announced by the new Minister of Transport in Parliament on 4th November 1964 that he "had decided to refuse his consent to the closure of twelve stations between Hellifield and Carlisle and the withdrawal of local services from this line"

I know it has nothing to do with Keighley and area but if anyone has connections to Wallasey in Cheshire, I have the book Then and Now, they were limited edition but if you want to borrow it just give me a shout. Les

I have a book in my collection called "Class and Politics in a Northern Industrial Town Keighley 1880-1914" by David James, which is very interesting as it mentions the wool side of Keghley life and the Cooperative Society movement.
richardjudson: You have an entry for Harry Judson, (I5071) son of Fanny Binns and Greenwood Judson. I have Harry Ingham Judson in my records as died 20th March 1951. I went to visit his grave in Barnet, Herts last month. I imagine I may have it wrong somewhere(?)
