Scope and Contents

208 x 158 mm. Showing Bell standing among a group of the British Cotton Growing Association in a Manchester street. The only other identified figure in the group is James Arthur Hutton (1862-1925), at the left of the photograph. Hutton, a co-founder of the Association, devoted many years work to the development of the cotton trade in the Empire and published a number of books on the subject. Bell's speech at the meeting pointed out that foreign competition was taking a disproportionate share of the market in Britain's overseas possessions.
