Until the coming of the railways, Britain's industrial revolution depended on canals for the cheap movement of materials and goods. This work discusses the people who lived and worked on the waterways, the canal boatmen and their families, and those who depended on the canal trade for a living, the lock-keepers, toll collectors, and canal company clerks. She provides a thorough, practical guide to the archives, books, websites and societies available for researchers. Her book is essential reading for anyone interested in this aspect of the industrial past.
