In Aug 1832 Anne was not impressed with Mallinson "told him he must give up having the masons and delvers fortnightly union meetings at his house or they would stamp it down, besides these meetings were not respectable & he would have his license taken from him"

One of our customer's has been doing some family history research. His family were tenants of and ran the Stag's Head pub. We found this great handbill in our collection. He has been using Anne's diaries to find out more about what life was like for his family (1/2)

Hi Anne. This is taken from the Census summary which is available to view by booking an appointment at local studies in Central Library. The full 1921 census should be available next year but we don't have a date as yet

I'm doing a light route 'Words in the Wild' on Mon 26 Oct subject to takers! Shorter, gentler but the same lovely place. ‘Well-paced, well-planned (suitable even for dodgy knees) & calming. Your words were in perfect symmetry with the dramatic landscape.'

The Census of 1921 shows the level of poverty that still existed and the effects of the war on population and marriage. There's also stats of aliens visiting Calderdale (not actually that exciting) - and 8 people from Halifax were born at sea during the decade!

Statistics! They are really fascinating and provide an insight into the lives of people who are not around anymore. Take a look at these reports of the Health Committee for Halifax 100 years ago which covered disease, sanitation and housing to build a full picture

It's and I found something in our local studies dept that I could actually use! If you ever needed help with cotton warp calculations then look no further than this book from 1876. And I've been buying new maths books today for the library!
