About this product
- DescriptionFor the men and women of the skilled trades in the early 20th century, the skills and kwledge of their respective crafts were a source of identity and pride. Together with the so-called unskilled, who built the infrastructure for the new society, these workers laid the cultural and social foundations of a new and fairer society. This book uses photographs to show two processes fundamental to creating a new society: the transformation of swamp into farmland then cityscape, and the transplantation of the kwledge and skill acquired in the Old World that were essential to building a new world.
