A826 w/c 09/09/13

The week ended with another trip to the National Archives at Kew, earlier in the week I did some consolidation work on the data I am starting to amass. I am trying to identify any gaps in the data but also gaps in contextual knowledge.

An example of this is from the trade directory business data I have been gathering, one business type is described as brazier but what is that? To me a brazier is something men in donkey jackets stood around while on strike in the 1970s but in fact in the trade directory context I think it means brass worker.
