Description

This book examines the history, processes, working conditions and records available for researching the various trades and occupations associated with leather work. The leather trade was at its height in the early to mid-1800s, and amongst our ancestors, we will invariably find leather tanners, curriers, merchants, shoemakers, saddle and harness makers, even cricket ball makers and sporran makers. These trades and many more are covered in this comprehensive guide.
