SATRA releases commemorative book
One hundred years of SATRA’s history has been condensed into a new publication.
SATRA is pleased to announce the release of a special publication to mark the organisation’s centenary in 2019. This A4-sized book takes the reader from the establishment of the original British Boot, Shoe and Allied Trades Research Association (the forerunner of SATRA) in 1919 through the Great Depression of the 1930s, the dark days of World War II, the ‘swinging sixties’ and the computerised eighties to the present day. It also investigates the growth in size and scientific capability which has led to SATRA becoming the world’s premier footwear research and testing organisation. The book is richly illustrated with over 100 historical and contemporary photographs and includes among its 21 chapters, sections on ‘SATRA research and innovations’, ‘SATRA in Asia’, ‘Royal visits’, ‘SATRA’s Everest boot’ and ‘SATRA in the new millennium’. A copy of this new publication, entitled SATRA – 100 years 1919-2019 is being despatched to each member company.
