From the evidence you have studied how useful are the range of building in Saltaire as evidence of Titus Salt's values and beliefs? Here is evidence to show us ad to give us an idea of Titus salts values and beliefs. For example the church, the institute, the mill, the houses, the street names, the hospital and the almshouses. When I look the church that Titus Salt Built I can see that it is a replica of the Italian church, and that it is the main and central feature of Saltaire I can also see that it is opposite the mills, which meant that the workers could go to it everyday a think about the importance of religion. Inside I can see the beautiful d�cor which included gold, marble-paste (scagliliola) pillars, decorated brickwork ring of 6 bells, glass lanterns which used to be powered by gas but now are powered but electricity due to health and safety (Source 2). The church itself cost �16 000 to build it. ...read more.


There is also a tower with a bell. At the top point of the Institute there are engraved alpaca's and a bird with stars and leaves around it . Also opposite the Institute is the a model of a town hall with lions outside it with Titus Salt's initials engraved in them. Here there are also activities that take part. Overall I believe that Titus Salt believed in good education. Today the Institute is a collage and is used for Saltaire's festivals and dance classes. another example of Titus Salts values and beliefs the mill. Just from looking at the outside I can see what Titus Salt believed in. The first thing that I see are a lot of Big windows which would let in a lot of light . This shows that he cared about his workers. Also the mill is very symmetrical and based on the Osborne house. The bricks that have been used again are very expensive and neo classical style. ...read more.


There were also arches where people threw their rubbish. This showed that Titus Salt believed is cleanliness and valued the health and living conditions of the town and its people. Today the houses are still in very good conditions and people still live in them. When I look around I can see that the street names are after members of the Family . This shows us that Titus valued his family and believed that they should remember them and him long after he has died. When I look at the hospital I can see it is built of very expensive bricks . Although the hospital is no longer used as a hospital I can see that Titus Salt valued his workers because he built them a hospital. Today the hospital has converted into flat, so I can't see what it like then. Opposite are the almshouses. They are wall made from expensive stone and haver a beautiful garden at the front . If you or your children misbehaved you lost everything, your house, job and pension. Children could start working at the age of 10 so they were well trained. Today these houses are still lived in by pensioners. ...read more.
