A few book talks coming up:
Monday 16th September: Manchester Lit&Phil, Deansgate
Thursday 10th October: Blackwells, University Green, Oxford Road
Wednesday 16th October: Manchester branch of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
If you are interested in a talk for your organisation, please get in touch. Audience feedback suggests I am a funny and passionate performer who leaves them surprised and fascinated by the past, and that the chairs could have been more comfortable: all I know is I love talking about this stuff. There’s usually much less mathematics than people expect, but most even like that two minutes.
The progress charts are from CK Shaw, Industrial Publicity, London: C&J Temple, 1944. Though both were in copyright in 1944, neither is credited to a named creator. I think the one above is therefore out of copyright, but it’s plausible that the one below was created by CK Shaw him/herself, in which case it is still copyright by the estate of CK Shaw as they were still producing Coronation guff in 1953.
