Introduction

This series unites collections that cover different aspects of the industrial revolution. While records on Bolton's mills cover the progress of the textile industry, reports on poor schools show the progress being made on getting children out of mills and into school. Medical essays from this time reveal the health problems affecting the population during this time of great social change. Then papers from Manchester Cathedral's archive show how parish populations were affected by movements of people. This Cathedral archive also contains details of legal judgements made by the church at the time when it served as a small claims court. Shipping records from Liverpool and Bristol then illustrate the pace of this social change through lists of the ships' contents.
