England's Co-operative Movement

An Architectural History

Lynn Pearson

Historic England in association with Liverpool University Press

  • The first book on the architectural history of England's co-operative movement
  • Brilliantly illustrated with a hand-picked selection of 300 colour and black-and-white images, archival and modern
  • The book reveals the huge contribution made by hundreds of provincial architects to co-op architecture
  • The book uncovers the little-known history of the Co-operative Wholesale Society's Architects' Department, one of the country's largest salaried architects' offices. The co-op's stores and the factories, offices and warehouses that formed their supply network are considered as a whole in this new architectural history
