Research into Victorian town planning

Just a short note to thank you for your help with my archival research into Victorian approaches to town planning. Your knowledge of Saltaire is inspiring and you also provided some valuable resources to support my research. Thank you for all your help.

An enquiry from Stromness

[Stromness RNLI 150 years celebration (The Orkney’s- the First Lifeboat was purchased, in part, through the generosity of Sir Titus Salt – as were those in Hull and Scarborough)]

Thank you so much for your information about Saltaire Archive and for the items you were able to send to include on our exhibition information boards. The images are particularly helpful for the display, but we also now know much more about our early benefactor.

Research into Saltaire

I Just wanted to email and say thank you for posting me the Saltaire booklet, I received it yesterday. I also wanted to thank you for letting me come and visit the archives a few weeks ago, my dissertation tutor was very impressed with all the information I had got from visiting, it has been very helpful for my research and for formulating ideas.

A-level studies

Thank you so much for your time last Thursday and for the excellent information sent in your e-mail. Both are invaluable to my teaching of the A Level students here at school and I feel very fortunate that you came along last week. There’s a goldmine of information for my students and I don’t feel completely qualified enough to do it justice (whilst keeping it within the confines of the curriculum’s scheme of work) but I will do my very best.

Going forward, you will no doubt hear from me again and you may well hear from one or two of my students should they choose to do their Independent Investigation (mini dissertation) on  Saltaire.

Local history for primary schools

I just wanted to say how useful and informative it was for us to visit Saltaire archive and see all the materials that relate to the history of the local area. Thank you for the time you took to explain many aspects of the archive. The requirements of the National Curriculum state that our children should develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of local history and understand how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources. The copies of your archive materials will be invaluable in enabling them to do so.
