Suggestions were made that changes could be achieved by attracting more families out in the evenings and making pubs more ‘women-friendly’ through conversion to café bars and wine bars. An extension of licensing hours later into the night would not only reduce violence but would encourage more footfall and life into the early hours of the morning. The Comedia authors each elaborated and extended these ideas through books, articles and conference papers in the years to follow. Bianchini brought forward experience gained from Italy, where the City Council in Rome had run a series of summer night-time events in the period 1977–1985 (Bianchini 1995).

Kneale (1999), in comparable terms, examines the history of the Victorian pub, principally in terms of how new technologies of surveillance served a primarily moral purpose. The open or long bar, as found in the majority of licensed premises today, was one such example. Returning to Somers’ discussion of new forms of sociality, he refers to the period of 1820 to 1920 as a ‘revolution’, rendering this period in terms of a receding Protestantism, which had always valued hard work over pleasure. In the USA, as in mainland Europe, the shift from a rural and agricultural society to an urban and industrial one impacted in significant ways on the organization of leisure, and corresponding pursuit of pleasure.

As prosperity increased in the last half of the decade the residential and commercial property markets boomed. House prices rose rapidly and unemployment declined. Town and city centres still struggled, despite an increase in prosperity. Industrial restructuring left industrial buildings located near to town centres, such as warehouses and factories, derelict. Although the financial services industry expanded, it also re-structured as ‘new’ technologies of telecommunications were adopted (Graham and Marvin 1996).
