Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

1914 Promotional Brochure




This is a great brochure, courtesy of Larry Lynch. It has images and floor plans of about 15 style houses (We would call them "Coffey" houses today), which you can have built.

It says:

Back in 1911 the first 23 Bungalows were built here.
37 new ones were built in 1912, 38 more in 1913 and for
1914 we hope to double that record: and judging by orders
in hand we believe we will.
Saltaire38.blogspot.com has the full brochure, but we don't know if there is enough interest to post all the pages. Let us know. Or if you have interest in a particular style home, perhaps the brochure has your style.
Let us know.

I think it would be great if you could post the entire thing. I have a dog eared photocopy, and those I have shown it to are always interested.
JO'H replies: .give me an E mail directly I can send you scans of every page. johareny@aol.com
