Synopsis

Working Lives of Warrington From Old Photographs by Janice Hayes

Today Warrington is a thriving business and commercial centre where its workers might be found sitting at computer terminals in offices and business parks, building societies, call centres and travel agents; or scanning goods at supermarket checkouts and super stores; frothing cappuccinos in cafe bars or delivering pizzas. Working life in Warrington was very different 100 years ago. Most people worked long hours in badly lit unventilated factories full of dangerous machinery and hazardous chemicals making goods for sale. Despite this the town could proudly call itself 'The Town of Many Industries' with a varied economy which had created one of the great industrial centres of north-west England. Working Lives of Warrington illustrates the changing world of the town's workplaces with fascinating images from the official archives and family albums captured by numerous local photographers who documented this vanished era.

About the Author
