Postage to UK addresses included
Published on 1st December 2021.
This incredible story of Birmingham Jewellery Quarter success, never been told like this before. Includes stunning photography by Jonathan Berg, someone who has worked on reportage of Birmingham since 1990, with his book Positively Birmingham currently close to selling out of its 5th edition.
The discovery and commercialisation of electroplating in Birmingham was founded on the experience in Birmingham’s ‘toy’ industry. The Elkington’s brought together new discoveries and innovation, together with people with the right skills to produce a world-beating business at break-neck speed. Elkington products are shown throughout the book, concentrating on examples of household items, today often hidden away in attics waiting to be rediscovered. The book shows so much of the 'Birmingham way' which still drives the city's industry and commerce forward today.
This hardback book is printed to the highest standards with every page an inspiration.
