The fourth and final volume of John Hannavy's series of books exploring Britain's rich industrial past.
This time, the subjects include the history of standardised time, the rise and demise of the mill, the importance of lime, and the creation of a 'Nation of Shopkeepers'. And with the author's long career as a photographic historian, the final chapter explores how the 'new art' of photography captured the evolution of Britain as a great industrial power.
Illustrated with more than 220 photographs, many of them taken specially, the book gives glimpses of some of the lesser-known features of Britain's past.
