George M Woodward archive
Born in 1765 and raised in Stanton by Dale, George Murgatroyd Woodward was a talented and evocative caricaturist. More interested in the humour found in everyday life than in high politics, the Woodward collection provides a fascinating insight into the tastes and fashions of 18th century England.
