William Robertson (1834 - 1924) came to Rochdale in 1860 and fell in love with the town and the surrounding area. He devoted much of his time to creating popular histories of the town and its inhabitants at a time of rapid change in the area.

Old and New Rochdale is a companion to the earlier Rochdale Past and Present and adopts an anecdotal manner in describing the people and places around the town.
