The new coffee tavern at Bradford

Interior and exterior views of the new coffee tavern in Bradford, inaugurated by W. E Forster, M.P in 1879. The Coffee Tavern movement was a Victorian effort to get people out of pubs. Proposed by the Bradford councillor, alderman and magistrate, Frederick Priestman, the tavern was opened at the junction of Westgate, Ivegate and Kirkgate and was an immediate commercial success serving food as well as coffee. Within a few years there were 28 branches in the Bradford district but with over 400 licensed beer sellers in the area, how much of a sobering effect they had on the local population is debatable

Titus Salt, English textile manufacturer Featured Print

Titus Salt, English textile manufacturer

Sir Titus Salt (1803-1876), English textile manufacturer and social reformer. Salt took over the running of his father's textile mill in Bradford in 1833 and over the next 20 years became the town's largest employer. He became Mayor in 1848 and, appalled at the effect of pollution on living standards in Bradford, tried to bring in legislation to limit air pollution. When all action was opposed, Salt left Bradford to set up an industrial community, Saltaire, on the banks of the River Aire. Noise and air pollution was minimised and all homes had running water and gas. Saltaire also had its own school, hospital, park and library. Illustration taken from The Imperial Dictionary of Universal Biography (1857-1863)
