Book Description

This volume focuses on the history of the Alfred Booth and Company in Liverpool from 1863 to 1958. Originally published in 1959, this is an account of a family business, written primarily for those who are, or have been, associated with it; but written also in the hope that it may be found of some value by those who are interested in the history of English economic development during the nineteenth century.
