WHEN did the Industrial Revolution really begin ?—as far back as the Tudor period ? This is one of the queries that Mr. Judges will answer tonight in his survey of English life and labour over the transitional days from Elizabeth to Anne. There is, as he will explain, a point in that survey where the organized group gives way to the individual (at any rate, where technical work is concerned). At that point, too, one can see the beginnings of capital and labour as two distinct things ; and, consequent also upon this transition from the group to the individual, the gradual march of industry out of the towns.
