- Description* PHANTOM in the LIBRARY! The BIZARRE TRUE STORY of a VICTORIAN HAUNTING revealed! * KING CHOLERA! The day that DEATH came to the DOCK FAMILY! * EXPLODING MUMMIES! The weirdest events of the BLITZ examined! * A YORKSHIRE TRAGEDY: Fifteenth-century MURDER at Calverley Hall! Leeds has one of the darkest histories on record.

With plague and disease in the city slums, dreadful disasters in Roundhay Park, and riots in the city centre, this is the real story of Yorkshire's first city.
