Dr Barbara Smith is a volunteer working on the collection of the UK Knitting & Crochet Guild. In this talk for the Huddersfield Local History Society, she recounts the history of two Huddersfield businesses. Greenwoods wool shop was established after the First World War, while Wakefield, Greenwood and Co. was a knitting yarn business which grew out of it, supplying shops throughout the UK and overseas.
