    Initially attracted by corrugated iron places of worship as 'photogenic in a gritty industrial way', Ian Smith became ever more involved in their history. The result is this illustrated account of the social and religious origins of the 'tin tabernacles', and a photographic survey of existing examples. The buildings include churches and church halls, chapels and mission halls, many resplendent in brightly coloured paintwork, while others have found new, secular uses ranging from agricultural storage to Women's Institute meeting halls.
