This is much more than an autobiography. Besides the past sixty years of the author's life, it gives an excellent and frequently entertaining account of the history of the narrow-fabrics industry, from the early 1920s. Though this is one man's experience - from apprentice weaver to chairman of his company - the author pays tribute to a great number of other people - both family and other colleagues in the business, and associates throughout Britain and the continent - who have made their own contributions to the industry to which he is devoted.Complete with original pr puff and compliment slip of Berisfords. Illustrated with B&W photographs.
