This detailed examination of the gas industry's emergence in the North West of England from 1805-1880 provides a fascinating account of the growth of an important industry. It describes the pioneers who matched supply with the demand for lighting streets, factories, shops and large houses. It shows how finance was raised, discusses who managed the undertakings, and describes the economic, social and political factors that affected strategic decision-making as the industry developed.
