Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0747807248, Paperback)

Victorian Factory Life uncovers the lives of the men, women and children who worked in the factories of Victorian Britain, manufacturing everything from hats, cloth and dinner plates to beer and locomotives. Life in the Victorian factory was harsh, and factory employees, many of whom were children, working hard for six days a week in dangerous conditions.

Generously illustrated with old photographs, artwork and pieces of ephemera, Victorian Factory Life is powerfully evocative of a past age of British working life and continues Shire's coverage of all aspects of Victorian life.
