This page gathers together some of the newspaper articles published about Moorhouse's Jam and Moorhouse people.  To open an article either click on the link on the right, or on the thumbnail below.  To enlarge an image click again and some will enlarge further.  If a full page of a newspaper is shown then move the mouse over the articles and click the one you want to view.

I also hope to gather more personal reminiscences such as Peter Moorhouse's article "A Jam Boilers Memoirs".

This page should be considerably expanded over the next year, if I can encourage more personal records and if you will all send me copies of articles in your possession.

The image resolution has been limited to make the images load in a reasonable time.  To enlarge an image click again and some will enlarge further.
