Heroes, Villains and Victims of Leeds by Stephen Wade
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Heroes, Villains and Victims of Leeds" tells the stories of the people who made Leeds the great Yorkshire city it is today. Some were industrialists and businessmen who stamped their name there, such as Montague Burton and Edward Bains. Others were writers and artists who made Leeds their source of inspiration. On the dark side we love the villains: Mary Bateman the prisoner, Charles Peasce the Killer and Lonie Calvert, murdering liar and fantasist. Most unusually, however, the book includes some forgotten names: quiet, steady 'heroes' who add that solid, dedicated work so necessary to civic urban community. This is a book about some of the men and women who made Leeds a powerful and fascinating City.
