This thesis investigated three industries which were largely Birmingham and Black Country trades. Four-fifths of the work is concerned with the brass trades and their trade unions. This work filled the gap of knowledge of the past and present labour conditions in Birmingham and Black Country trades by doing research on written sources and conducting personal enquiry.
