Was it really 'a large industrial town' - where was the industry?

Thanks for your feedback. In the early 19th century Bangor was a relative large industrial town whose population quadrupled between 1801 and 1841. The opening of the slate quarries of Bethesda - slate was shipped across the world from Bangor, led to many subsidiary industries being established at Bangor including slate processing works, writing slate manufacturing, foundries and major ship building.
