Delving once more into the colossal photographic archives of the Yorkshire Post, Peter Tuffrey has produced another fascinating publication: Yorkshire People at Work. Whilst trying to illustrate the areas of work for which the county is perhaps best known - railways, fishing, textiles and steel making - Peter quickly realised that the range of occupations was enormous not to mention intriguing. Consequently, the book is unpredictable and exciting. It includes fire eaters, bakers, buskers, model makers, train drivers, and undertakers to mention only a few. Peter admits to choosing jobs that he could never attempt himself but that is of no consequence because it all adds up to a marvellous catalogue of the many diverse professions in Yorkshire. From the many thousands of pictures perused over a long period, the final number for inclusion in the book was whittled down to around 225. The pictures owe much to the Yorkshire Post's staff photographers' ability to get the best out of a subject by means of clever camera angles and imaginative compositions. Each picture also has concise informative captions alongside, which complete this celebration of Yorkshire People at Work.
