The Book

Gloucester has been a centre for trade and industry since the Roman times.
From megalithic industrial concerns, employing hundreds of people, to small
family businesses, Gloucester has a wealth of industrial heritage. It is a
microcosm of Britain’s economic history.
Gloucester at Work explores the life of this city and its people, from
pre-industrial beginnings through to the present day. In a fascinating series of
photographs and illustrations it takes us from the days when Gloucester had
a Roman tile factory to the development of highly skilled trades during the
medieval period through to the Victorian economic behemoth it became. It
looks at its proud aerospace industry, particularly during the war years,
through to its dwindling fortunes during the seventies and eighties. More
recently Gloucester has seen an economic upsurge with the creation of digital
technologies and cyber security. Gloucester at Work maps some of the
contributions made by entrepreneurs, engineers, innovators and skilled
tradespeople as well as the ordinary men and women who have contributed to
the city’s and the nation’s wealth, by working in this great city.
