Huddersfield 150: The Exhibition is a celebration of the incorporation of the town in 1868. Incorporation was a crucial part of Huddersfield’s development into an industrial powerhouse and the largest town in the North. From health and sanitation to transport, utilities and democracy, it lit the touchpaper of civic pride and expansion.
The exhibition features highlights from the collections of West Yorkshire Archives Service (Kirklees) and has been curated by local historians, supported by Heritage Quay and West Yorkshire Archive Service.
The exhibition forms part of a series of events celebrating the 150. You can find out more about them here: https://huddersfield150.org.uk/
