The history of a great mill and textile manufacturer is recounted in this book with wit and erudition. The story covers Victorian enterprise on a grand scale, the experience of a major industry over many stormy years, changes of fashion, the evolution of design and production of fabrics in many forms and uses, the dramas of war and peace, and the role of the people of Bradford. Listers is both a piece of Victorian industrial history, and a company of the 20th century. The book concludes with an account of a radical development for Manningham Mills giving the buildings an important new cultural and business function.
