Summary Electronic reproduction of Mass-Observation topic collection papers on industry, production and industrial relations. Most of the early material in this collection was acquired in the course of Mass-Observation's 1941-1942 Industrial Survey, which resulted in the publication of People in Production (Advertising Services Guild 'Change' series ; No. 4. 1942) and War Factory (1943). The later part of the collection is not extensive: between 1945-1949 there are reports on strikes and disputes and there is a single file from 1955 at the end of the sequence. The small amount of pre-war material has mostly been integrated with the rest of the collection, and can be found under subject headings, as it appears to have been collected as background material for the Industrial Survey of 1941-1942. Fuller collections of pre-war material exist in other Topic Collections held in the Archive.
