New Book now available: Tin Tabernacles Postcard Album £12.99 plus £2.00 UK P&P
Early postcards offer a fascinating visual insight into history. This new book illustrates just some of the wide variety of iron churches, missions halls and chapels built by the early Victorian engineers to satisfy the needs of the religious revivals of the 19th century. Corrugated iron provided one of the best ways of erecting temporary buildings and manufacturers were quick to identify its potential. As we can see today, many of these temporary buildings managed to survive far longer than their builders. Size: 189 x 266mm, 154 pages. ISBN 978-0-9566132-0-2. 304 black and white illustrations, 9 colour

The book is 255mm x 255 mm casebound, 208 pages full colour throughout, over 370 illustrations, RRP £24.95, ISBN 0-9547126-0-9. In a broad overview it tells the story of corrugated iron churches, chapels, mission halls and related buildings. It features archive and contemporary material illustrating this almost-forgotten part of our industrial and architectural heritage. In attempting to explain how these buildings were produced, who they were for, and why we should consider them to be important, the book shows how these buildings reflected the society in which they were created and flourished. A photographic survey gathers together just some of the surprising number of these buildings which still survive.
