The new coffee tavern at Bradford Featured Print

The new coffee tavern at Bradford

Interior and exterior views of the new coffee tavern in Bradford, inaugurated by W. E Forster, M.P in 1879. The Coffee Tavern movement was a Victorian effort to get people out of pubs. Proposed by the Bradford councillor, alderman and magistrate, Frederick Priestman, the tavern was opened at the junction of Westgate, Ivegate and Kirkgate and was an immediate commercial success serving food as well as coffee. Within a few years there were 28 branches in the Bradford district but with over 400 licensed beer sellers in the area, how much of a sobering effect they had on the local population is debatable.

Proposed Channel Tunnel, works at Sangatte Featured Print

Proposed Channel Tunnel, works at Sangatte

The works at Sangatte on the French coast for the proposed Channel Tunnel in 1876, described in The Graphic as, "this gigantic and long-talked of scheme," and, "splendid evidence of the determination and perseverance with which obstacles and impediments are met by scientific men of the present age." The tunnel workings did not make much progress until 1881 when work began in Britain, but by the middle of the decade the Government vetoed continuance of the work due to security concerns.
