Edwin Coldwell 1907 to 1990 See in Family Tree
Charming personal stories written by my father who was from a typical working class family in the Huddersfield area at the height of the successful textile industry. The broad lapelled suit he is wearing is made from the famous worsted cloth manufactured in the area. Father became a respected worsted cloth designer and Mary a well known embroiderer. Some aspects of these tales are personal to the family but in the interests of historical accuracy I thought it was worth publishing unabridged to give a better flavour of family life at the time. Hand written by Edwin in the copperplate writing all children were taught to do at that time. There are minimal errors reflecting the “get it right first time” approach – an aspect of their 3R’s teaching.
