Leeds history is full of remarkable men and women in many different spheres. Some are famous, others less so, but rarely are their biographies well known. And only occasionally are their histories accurately recorded. Not since Rev Richard Taylor’s two volumes of Leeds biographies of 1865 and 1867 has there been a publication encompassing all the biographies of the men and women who have made Leeds.
David Thornton has produced a fascinating companion volume to his 2013 Leeds - A Historical Dictionary of People, Places and Events that will be an essential reference work to assist historians, aid journalists and inform all those interested in the history of the city of Leeds down the ages.
