Lace: Slums and the Occasional Riot, Chris Weir, Southwell LHS

26 June, 7:30 pm

Event Navigation

On Wednesday 26th June 2019 commencing at 7:30pm in Southwell Library Chris Weir tells the story of how Nottingham changed from what Daniel Defoe described as ‘one of the most pleasant towns in England’ into a major industrial city.

The talk follows the fortunes of the hosiery trade, and the development of the giant lace industry with its fine warehouses on Stony Street and Broadway.  Names like Birkins and Adams became leading names in the lace trade. But alongside wealth came poverty riots and crime.
