W Moult and J Fidler, workers at hatworks

Ernest Battersby took a number of photogrpahs of employees at the family hatworks in Stockport, and noted their names as well. It is not specified which man is which, but the census record show that both worked as Plankers, partof the felt production process. In 1911 Walter Moult was aged 40, married with three children in Charles Street, Stockport, and in the same year James Fidler was 38, married but boarding alone at Buckingham Street, Stockport. This makes the men about 33 and 35 years old and they illustrate the clothing typical of a factory worker at the time. Date: circa 1906

1861 Census office Featured Print

1861 Census office

The Census Office at Craig's Court, near Trafalgar Square in London. Up until 1920, a Census Act had to be passed every ten years to permit the taking of a census in the UK. Therefore, there was no permanent office established for the collection of census returns, and a temporary location was used each time. In 1861, the office was located here. Date: 1861
