Local Slums



The overcrowded housing in towns and cities is one of the consequences of the Industrial Revolution, when workers needed to live close to the factories and mills where they were employed.

Until the restructuring after World War II, when run-down areas were redeveloped or the occupants were moved to the new tower blocks and housing estates, there were several slums in and around Halifax.
