During the second wave of the Industrial Revolution, between 1837 and 1910, mills, factories and engineering works became a common feature of Britain’s townscapes. Focusing on that period, this volume looks at the development of industrial architecture from the purely functional factories of the 1830s to buildings such as Everard’s Printing Works in Bristol, with its Art Nouveau façade. The book is arranged by types of manufactures and illustrated with 150 prints and photographs of buildings now demolished and of the survivors.
