Keighley is an old town. A significant manor by the time of Domesday Book, when they called it “Chichleai”, though we cannot know how they pronounced it, it was granted a market charter by Edward I as early as 1305 and by Tudor times the textile trade had taken root, though it was not until the 19th century that power-driven machinery in ‘mills’ brought a rapid population increase. Since then the town has seen great changes, most of which were recorded by the newly-invented camera and the author, himself a keen photograph, has gathered a superb selection of images of old Keighley to illustrate this well-researched account of the town’s history, from its beginnings…Ref: 87
