Livestock Markets in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cheshire
Following at least five generations of livestock salesmen and with some sixty years as an auctioneer, John Thomson, with his lifetime experience, is well placed to tell the story of the development of marts and livestock auctioneering over two centuries.
This book, a readable blend of historical fact and reminiscence, has its emphasis on the counties of Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cheshire. It will contribute to the knowledge of, and interest in, the auctioneers and their marts which have made such an important contribution to agricultural history.
