The Accounts and Letter Books of one local business, Lowe’s Rope Manufactory survive and are held at Bewdley Museum. Using these sources, E M Crowther has composed a picture of its experience in the 19th and 20th centuries. The early history, though, is poorly recorded until 1833, when letter books provide an account of commercial transactions.« Previous in this sectionNext in this section »
