Port Sunlight - a workers utopia

Page from The Illustrated London News with photographs reporting on the model factory village of Port Sunlight on the Wirral, near Birkenhead. Established by William Hesketh Lever, later Lord Leverhulme, the village provided spacious accommodation and numerous amenities for workers at the Lever Brothers soap factory. Images of the schools built by labour, the open air swimming pool, a Sunday School procession and the picturesque houses all testify to the wholesome way of life enjoyed by Port Sunlight's inhabitants. Date: 1905

Perambulate library 1857

A Gentleman travelling from village to village, wheeling a large box containing a supply of books to rural people. Once they had received their books he would take the next set that they had used to the next village, with a circle of eight villages, and when he finished he would go round again. This comprised of Ireby, Torpenhow, Bothel, Bolton, Low Houses, Sandal, Bolton Gate and Uldale. The plan was to give the rural readers some good literature, they would pay an annual subscription and receive a member-ship card to borrow books. Date: 1857
