Bury Archives & Local History

Acknowledgement Of Great Customer Service


Working-Class Capitalists

It is always nice when someone is happy with the service that they receive here at Bury Libraries. So it was especially thrilling when the Archives and Local Studies department found out that our Reference Librarian received a dedication of thanks in a customer’s Ph.D. Thesis.

Adam Carter is personally mentioned in Mr P. W. Hampson’s thesis ‘Working – Class Capitalists’. In recognition of the help given to him by Bury Libraries, Mr Hampson has kindly donated a copy of his work to the Local History Service for use as a reference document. Some of our fantastic library team came together for a small handover ceremony to mark the occasion; it was of course a great excuse for tea and cake!

Mr Hampson, Elizabeth Binns (Head of Bury Libraries) and some of our great team.
