'The Costume of Yorkshire' and its context

This year is the 200th anniversary of a publication which offers us some of the best-known and most recognisable images of Yorkshire life.

Dr John Hargreaves will discuss Walker's famous work and describe the social and political context in which it was created at a talk in Huddersfield on Wednesday 3 December.

This event is a being hosted by the University of Huddersfield and will be held at its new Heritage Quay archive centre. The talk will take place at 2pm and will be followed by an opportunity to view the artist’s original watercolours which are in the care of the Yorkshire Archaeological Society.
