At the beginning of the 1950s, Leicester was an industrial city picking itself up from the debris of World War II. Compared with nearby Coventry, Leicester has been a relatively safe place, but the effects of the blitz were still very evident in New Walk and in the residential areas of Highfields and Stoneygate. After years of operating on a wartime economy, Leicester's major industries - textiles, hosiery and machine tools - faced the challenge of returning to domestic production, and in assimilating a large male workforce returning from the battlefields of Europe and beyond to civilian life. Nathaniel Corah and British United Shoe Machinery were the major employers in the area.
