This volume describes the records of 1230 businesses engaged in some of the most significant sectors of British manufacturing industry between the Industrial Revolution and the First World War. It covers such traditional trades as iron-founding, lock making and silversmithing, charts the development of 19th-century innovations including large-scale steel manufacture and the building of railway locomotives and iron ships, and throws light on the early days of major 20th-century industries such as motor vehicles and electrical goods. The guide aims to incorporate research into many previously uncatalogued and little-known collections both in private hands and in record repositories. It provides a wide range of information for economic and social historians and for other specialists. Professor R.H. Campbell's introductory essay places the survey in the wider context of its potential use to such researchers.
