Mr. William Smith, F.S.A.S. (Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland) the Morley historian and author of many Morley local history books including “Rambles about Morley”, “The History and Antiquaries of Morley”, “Morley Ancient and Modern”, etc, gave a lecture on 9th December, 1898, to St Mary’s Literary and Debating Society, on the subject “The Public Houses of Morley: their Memories and Associations.” This booklet is a full transcription of the text of this interesting talk, including supplementary images of a number of the public houses under discussion, sadly some of these public houses, over the intervening years, have been demolished.
The addenda include a list of licensed premises in Morley: 1897/1898, showing the name of the licensee, also a list of the Friendly Societies or Lodges in Morley district at that time.
