The History of the making of Furniture is inexorably tied to the
development and decline of the successive civilisations which have
given the punctuation to the story of man's emergance in a settled
society. In tracing the development of the Trade Unions in the
furniture industry it is necessary to provide as a postscript a brief
summary of furniture making through the ages, and its development in
the United Kingdom. Of necessity this history is not exhaustive, and
must needs take a partial view, but it is included in the main work
to set the scene for the emergance of the workers organisations in
the middle of the Victorian era.
