If you lived in Hunslet before most of those “blackened terraces” were demolished in the 1960s, you’ll remember the often cold, draughty houses with outside toilets, the long hours spent at physically demanding work in the home or in paid jobs, poor health, soot and smog…. but also a richness and variety that Keith Waterhouse describes so vividly.
Hunslet Remembered celebrates the Hunslet we knew up to the 1970s. Using maps, photos and words, it reminds us what life was like. However, it’s just a start, a way of stirring your memories.
