1887 Royal Yorkshire Jubille Exhibition at Saltaire.

The work of a school of art was carried on in the Salt Schools at Saltaire, founded and endowed by Sir Titus Salt in 1877, but in later years the schools encountered difficulties through want of space; the governors of the various bequests and endowments decided to build the art and science schools as a memorial to the late Sir Titus Salt, Bart. These schools were completed in 1886, and the Saltaire Exhibition was put on with a view to paying for them from expected profits. The Exhibition was, however, postponed until 1887; it was opened by Princess Beatrice and Prince Henry of Battenburg.
