WORKTOWN: THE ASTONISHING STORY OF THE BIRTH OF MASS-OBSERVATION
Written by David Hall.
Stock no. 1817523
Published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson. 1st 2015. Nearly fine condition in a fine dustwrapper.

In the late 1930s, the Lancashire town of Bolton witnessed a ground-breaking social experiment. Over three years, a team of ninety observers recorded, in painstaking detail, the everyday lives of ordinary people at work and play with the aim to create an 'anthropology of ourselves'. It later grew into the Mass Observation movement. David Hall relates the extraordinary story of this project, along the way he creates a richly detailed portrait of a lost chapter of British social history, and of the life of an industrial northern town before the world changed forever. Black boards, silver title to spine. B/w photos. ISBN: 9780297871682.
