Life in a Railway Factory - WILLIAMS, Alfred

David & Charles, 1969, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good+ - in Good DJ. Edges of DJ somewhat ruffled, rubbed at the edges and the spine. Leans. Text bright and tight.

First published in 1915, Alfred William's account of life and work in the Great Western Railway's Swindon works is a classic - both a unique social document and a piece of literature. Its wealth of detailed information on working conditions, often atrocious, and on the attitudes of the day contains much that is not available elsewhere; and it rises above the level of ordinary reportage. First in this edition.
