"Continuations to the History of Bradford" is a somewhat mis-leading title to the book and would have been more aptly titled "An updated History of Bradford", as it seems to cover all the information in the previous "History of Bradford" from some 25 years previous, but additionally has information not included in the previous book, and of course the information from the 25 years between the publications. There is neither contents nor index to this book, and so in order to assist those who would like to know a bit more about the contents of the book, the folowing are available here on-line:
