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.

Rochdale Past and Present is a more concise history of the changes in Rochdale, his later volumes would lean more towards anecdotal accounts of local people and places.
