Although there was no table of contents upon which to base the organisation of the study, I tried wherever possible to follow internal evidence as a guide for ordering the flow of the chapters.
While some of the chapters are combined texts, unless bracketed, all titles are taken from the texts written by the Mass-Observation authors, principally Tom Harrisson. An unknown error has occurred.

Worktowners at Blackpool
Synopsis About this title Gary Cross publishes the findings of this largely forgotten study by the Mass-Observers who followed the annual pilgrimage of labourers to Blackpool, hoping to discover what attracted workers to this centre of Victorian culture. A spieler gathers a crowd around the machine:. I expect many of you will remember that I personally had the honour to introduce it at the Exhibition at Wembley, at the World Fair in Chicago, and at the International Exposition in Paris, and in many other places. Now I am not going to bore you with a technical description of how this truly amazing machine works, but will content myself with showing you a few of the things that it can do.
But first let me convince you that I am not, as is often suggested, a ventriloquist. I am going to ask the Robot to talk, and then talk myself. But what you have just seen it perform is nothing. Today this machine is progressing many stages further.

It will actually describe you. In the form of a horoscope it will give character delineation. It will describe you better than your own mother could hope to describe you. Nothing private will be disclosed. It prints your character by electricity.
