    The 19th century brought prosperity to Wakefield, so that by 1900 the city had become both the centre of a new diocese and the seat of the West Riding County Council, with fine public amenities benefiting from mains water and electricity. Making use of contemporary documents and photographs, Taylor surveys this century of civic development and the growth of Wakefield's places of worship, schools and entertainment venues.
