1526 : Halifax From Southowram Bank


HALIFAX FROM SOUTHOWRAM BANK (c 1968)
During much of the nineteenth and twentieth century, that part of Halifax north of the Parish Church and along the banks of the Hebble were dominated by the works of the Halifax Gas, Light and Coke Company. The streets of the town were first lit by gas lights in the 1820s, and it wasn't until the late twentieth century that the structures that created, cooled, and stored all that gas and power were finally removed.
