Abstract :
Buildings and industrial landscapes of the lace, framework-knitting and footwear industries reveal the often overt nature of control over both production and development, itself a reflection of the drive for profits in early modern capitalism. Within the English East Midlands survives considerable evidence of these once extensive outworking industries, reflecting a major speculative expansion in the often competitive market for housing and workshop provision throughout the 19th c. 'People and process' issues within family and 'team' working are addressed within the three industries, seen as critical to the identification of both implicit and explicit, imposed structural control within outworking. In all three industries reliance was placed upon the putting-out of work, the chimera of independence a dogged bulwark against the transition to centralised factory production made possible by British and North American technological developments. Emphasises the spatial nature of outworking within homes, workshops and landscapes during the 19th c., a reflection of working and living constraints imposed by builders unlikely ever to directly experience their ideas in practice. ;
