About this event

Celebrate the contributions to Leeds of this remarkable, far-sighted businessman, innovator and politician, who lived 1821-1905.

Arriving in Leeds as a young man, he established a tailoring business and brought in ground-breaking machinery to revolutionise the pace and scale of production. He could be said to have invented ready-made clothing.

As a town councillor, he supported many improvements and 150 years ago he audaciously secured a public asset still much appreciated today: Roundhay Park.

He served as Mayor of Leeds 1870-71 and as an MP 1876-85.
