Notes:

by Harveypeter (WorldCat user on 2006-08-03)

This pamflet, one of six or seven by this author, gives a clear picture of the horrendous conditions in which workers in St Helens and Widnes toiled on a daily basis.The Chemical Industry, still in its infancy, was the cause of great pollution and ill health.These towns in Lancashire, England were transformed by the chemical waste, the pollution of streams and the atmosphere. The working conditions and poor pay lead to the expression " White slaves of England"
