Abstract

The A. develops industrial restructuring in the context of Birmingham in the Great depression of the 1870s and 1880s. Small workshops in inner Birmingham, with a finely graded, differentiated and highly skilled workforce were replaced by factory-based mechanized production on greenfield sites, using semi-skilled labour and producing in different sectors from those previously dominant. This restructuring had important consequent effects on the development of the urban built form, and on the social and political behaviour of the local labour force.
