Worktowners at Blackpool: Mass-Observation and Popular Leisure in the 1930s
Gary S. Cross
Routledge, 1990 - Social Science - 245 pages
The Mass-Observers (an English research collective formed in 1937), chronicled the behavior of crowds in the steets and pubs, the meaning of sidewalk freakshows and dance hall music, and sexual interactions and social aspirations of these Depression era workers. Worktowners at Blackpool is a valuable document of social history, and a unique study of the anthropology of industrial life.
