Bradford Pubs

Author: Paul Jennings Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/01/2020

This fascinating volume tells the story of Bradford's pubs over two centuries of history. Illustrated with over 150 old photographs, plans and advertisements, the collection recalls the pubs, the people who ran them, the customers who frequented them adn the brewers who supplied and usually owned them. THe reader will glimpse the pub in all its many guises, from the coaching inns of the early nineteenth century, to the splendid Victorian gin palaces adn humble back-street beer houses, right up to modern pubs of the twentieth century. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of both Bradford and its pubs, Paul Jennings takes the reader on a tour from the centre of the city out through the old working-class districts which surround it, including Broomfields, Wapping and White Abbey, and into the varied localities which together formed old Bradford.

A Different Boy

A Different Boy

Author: Paul Jennings Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/08/2018

'The ship was a towering fortress looming over the pier. Anton stared enviously at the emigrants lining up in front of the wide gangplank. Heading off on a voyage to a land of peace and plenty. Leaving the land of broken buildings and crushed hopes behind. Looking forward to sunshine and steaks. How he wished that he was one of the lucky ones.' Loosely based on Paul Jennings' journey to Australia as a 'ten pound Pom', the story of Anton, who escapes from an orphanage and successfully stows away on a boat headed for the land of 'sunshine and steaks' has a timeless reality of its own. It is a tale of loss, guilt, mistaken identity and taking risks but also surprisingly heartwarming and heartbreaking. Perfect for reluctant readers in upper primary and lower secondary, it speaks of loss, migration, reslience and courage. Beautifully illustrated by Geoff Kelly.
