Britain's labour movement has left a rich architectural heritage of trade union headquarters, institutes and co-operatives. Extensively illustrated with modern and period photographs, this book traces their development from the Chartists through the Arts and Crafts movement to 20th-century Modernism; it outlines recent preservation campaigns, and details surviving buildings that can be visited; and beyond the bricks and mortar, it is a history of the men and women who struggled to improve the lives of working people.
