Presidential Address. A Brief Review of the Present Position of the British Glass Industry
T072-T081 (10 pages)
I think that the end of the first completed year in the history of the Society of Glass Technology affords a fitting opportunity to review briefly the situation in the British glass industry and see how it compares with the pre-war position. In these very busy days there is not much time available to get exact figures together, and even if there were it might not be in the national interest to discuss them, so it is desirable to speak in a more or less general way. For the sake of convenience. I propose to divide the industry into eight trade sections, namely, those dealing with: 1. Table and Decorative Glassware; 2. Plate and Window Glass; 3. Optical Glass; 4. Chemical, Scientific, and Heat-resisting Glass, including burner and lamp chimneys and miners' lamp glasses; 5. Electric Lamp Bulb Glass; 6. Pressed Glassware; 7. Common Glass Bottles and Jars; and 8. So-called Flint Glass Bottles and Jars.
