SNIPPETS of Huddersfield history - from the Sex Pistols' final UK gig at a local nightclub to Castle Hill - are available straight to mobile phones.
The project, called Surface Patterns, is aimed at building a huge archive of memories and revealing facts on the town's past via texting technology.
It allows mobile phone users to send a text and receive historic facts about 10 different parts of Huddersfield.
The featured sites include Castle Hill, the railway station, the McAlpine Stadium and the university.
Project management firm Blink, based in Quay Street, Huddersfield, is behind the project and director Lisa Roberts, 34, said she was hoping it would be popular with young and old.
She said: "When people text us to ask for a fact about a certain place they will be given the chance to leave us a message or memory about Huddersfield.
"Hopefully we will build up lots of thoughts, anecdotes and personal histories of the town.
"There is also an audio line so if people don't want to use text they can leave real voice messages."
The project will provisionally run for 12 months but could be increased if it goes well.
"I wanted originally to be able to send old pictures of Huddersfield to people's mobile phones. Then they could compare old with new.
"At the moment this is too expensive to do but as the technology develops I think it would work really well."
Surface Patterns started on Thursday and will run for a year. Texts are charged at the normal rate but it is free to receive the information. The audio line is charged at the normal local rate.
