Abstract:Between 1860 and 1890 England and France settled into their respective roles: England clothed the world and France the Haute Monde. It was a period of great industrial expansion and of crucial importance to the needle trades, which with the invention of the sewing machine had crossed forever into a modern age of industrialised mass production. It is well documented for contemporaries realised the importance of the revolution that they were observing. Its triumphs are recorded in the Exhibition reports, bread and butter existence in the pages of the Blue Books and its hardships in Trade Union records.
