Persisting Traditions: Artisan Work and Culture in Bangor, Maine, 1820-1860
This book is about the work and culture of artisans in Bangor, Maine, during the decades of early industrialization. The central question posed here is how did these artisans, these highly skilled housewrights and shipwrights, tinsmiths and blacksmiths, carriage makers and cabinet makers, coopers and cordwainers, iron founders and other skilled workers, respond to the emerging industrial system?
