A Mixed Harvest: Stories of New Mills

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A Mixed Harvest: Stories of New Mills is a fresh look at the history of this Peak District town, perched atop the torrs above the gorge of the River Sett. By turning his focus on the people of New Mills and the stories of their lives, Maurice Hope deftly draws pictures of a changing town: recreating the atmosphere of the Industrial Revolution, the two World Wars and the modern technological revolution through details of everyday life gleaned from books, newspapers, parish records, advertisements and other published sources.Here are the people of New Mills through the years, at work and at leisure, bringing to life the history of the town - a cast of often forgotten but fascinating characters. Nineteenth-century industrialists and philanthropists lay the foundations of the modern town: homes, almshouses, factories, libraries and schools.

CONDITION: Very minor scuffs to DJ, mark to front to clean white front board and some minor foxing to top edge of boards/pages otherwise very good with no inscriptions or notations.
