Industrial Revolutionaries

Mill Boy

26 June – 6 November 2010

Industrial Revolutionaries was an exhibition spanning 150 years of Preston’s history, looking at the personalities that helped create the modern world. Delving in to the lives of key individuals, and the movements they created, the exhibition revealed their influence, political history and global impact through over 70 objects, including portraits, major loans and key items from the Harris collection.

People in Preston helped to create a new industrial world and then fought to redress the resulting problems of inequality through radical social reform and political activism. Preston is a microcosm for understanding the North West’s industrial pioneers and their ideas – ideas that shaped the modern world.
