The Lancashire working classes : c.1880-1930 by Trevor Griffiths( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the experiences and values which shaped working-class life in Britain in the half-century from 1880. It takes as its focus a region, Lancashire, which was central to the social and political changes of the period. The discussion centres on two towns, Bolton and Wigan, which, while they were geographically close, differed significantly in their industrial fortunes and their electoral development. The formation of class identity is traced through developments in the world of work, from the impact of technological and managerial innovations to the elaboration of collective-bargaining procedures. Beyond work, particular attention is paid to the dynamics of neighbourhood and family life, the latter emerging as an important source of continuity in working-class life. The broader impact of such influences are traced through a close examination of the electoral politics of the period."--Jacket

This monograph will be the first to document the habits and growth of cinema attendance in Scotland during the early twentieth-century, while integrating the study of cinema into the wider debates of social and economic history. Feeding off questions like: What did Scots of this period go to see at the cinema? What was available and why? What was the experience like?, Trevor Griffiths draws extensively on archival resources concerning the cinema as a business, on documentation kept by cinema managers, and on the diaries and recollections of attendees to create a comprehensive text on the patterns of cinema-going and attendance levels, as well as changes in audience preferences for different genres, stars or national origins of films

Accounts of nineteenth-century Scotland have been preoccupied with the impact of change, unprecedented in its pace and extent.
