An extended dissertation on the architecture of Bradford - interesting, but not worth paying money for. I am well acquainted with much of the original material, and could probably have looked up the original paper for free (and hopefully without all the typos). City Engineer Stanley Wardley inflicted a slew of ugly buildings on the city in the 50s and 60s - which have now been pulled down to make way for more ugly buildings - but bar the loss of the Swan Arcade and Kirkgate Market, I now think that his vision of the future was as bad as I previously thought. The best Victorian architecture (including Paper Hall) survived, after all. ( )
