Salt Titus

Salt, SIR TITUS, BART. (1803-76), philanthropist and founder of Saltaire in Yorkshire, is generally considered the discoverer of alpaca-wool, and certainly was the first to turn it to manufacturing uses. He created a splendid business at Saltaire, became M.P. for Bradford in 1859, and a baronet in 1869.
