A Ramble ‘Round Old Birmingham

By George Selgin

BB&T Professor of Free Market Thought, West Virginia University.


Professor Selgin offers us a fascinating tour 'round the Birmingham which would have been very familiar to Matthew Boulton. It is a Friday, around the middle of October, 1829, and we will visit the places which Boulton knew, and hear the sounds of the people Boulton heard.

Our guide extends to 57 pages, and so is presented as a .pdf document for downloading and enjoying at leisure, rather than as what would be an extremely long web page!
