The Industrial Classes and Industrial Statistics. Textiles and Clothing, Food, Sundry Industries. (with maps).
London: Edward Stanford, 1877. "It is singular, even in these days of social science, to note how scanty and scattered is all information about the British workman..From a political point of view, he has been frequently written and talked about - too much so indeed for his own good or for the good of the country, - but comparatively seldom, when we come to inquire into his social condition, as dependent upon, or connected with, his special branch of labour." Pp.viii/252/16(ads for other publications), folding coloured explanatory map frontispiece showing where textile and clothing industries cluster + a further coloured food map showing products and agricultural areas, several statistical tables, yellow endpapers listing publications by the author on British manufacturing industries. Maroon cloth with blind-stamped motif to front board, gilt title to spine, wear to top and tail of spine and corner tips. G+.

G+.** "Fanny Louisa Calder (1838-1923) was a pioneer of domestic science and was responsible for the Fanny Calder School of Domestic Science...She began running classes in 1874, which led to her eventually establishing her school based in St. Georges Hall in Liverpool. Her aim was to improve the diets and lifestyles of the people of Liverpool by teaching them how to cook and clean and look after themselves. With her progress in Liverpool, Fanny L. Calder wanted to promote women’s education throughout the UK and so worked with similar institutions in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Yorkshire, resulting in the 1876 formation of the Northern Union of Training Schools of Cookery. The women’s education movement founded its first national organisation in 1897, in which F.L. Calder played a fundamental role, the Association of Teachers of Domestic Science. Throughout her life F.L. Calder wrote numerous articles and letters about her mission of bringing domestic science into the education system whilst also promoting the distribution of affordable cookery books produced at the school. She also co-authored with the head teacher at the cookery school, E.E. Mann, the first laundry work teaching manual, ‘A Teachers’ Manual of Elementary Laundry Work’ published in 1891. Fanny L. Calder also wrote a number of recipes herself, the most well-known being her War Cake recipe her original hand written copy of which is currently held in the Liverpool John Moores Universities Archives."

Having served his time from 1879 to 1886 in his father's works (Messrs. Thomas and Taylor, laundry engineers, of London and Stockport), he was then engaged by them as traveller; and in 1890 was appointed manager of their London works. He designed and superintended the erection of public laundries, baths and wash-houses, and dairies, all over the United Kingdom, in several of which he installed electric lighting. His death took place on 3rd January 1902, in his thirty-sixth year." (Grace's Guide).** "While the upper classes went on employing washerwomen and/or general servants, there were various cheaper "send-out" laundry services in the later 19th century and early 20th, including laundries that brought both domestic laundry and linen from hotels etc. to a "hand-finished" standard. The simplest were wet wash (US) and bag wash (UK) arrangements where you sent off a bundle of dirty laundry to be washed elsewhere. Ironing was done at home at this bottom end of the market. In some places a mangle woman with a box mangle would charge pennies for pressing household linen and everyday clothing." (oldandinteresting).
