Retail & Handicraft
Category (C)
This category is based on just one of the nine original 1831 categories, "Employed in Retail Trade, or in Handicrafts as Masters or Workmen". In this period, many people worked for very small businesses which made goods at the back of the shop and sold them at the front, so an individual would often work in both "retailing" "and handicraft" within a single hour.
