Ruins of the Lower-House Mill, near Oldham, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Ruins of the Lower-House Mill, near Oldham, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Ruins of the Lower-House Mill, near Oldham, 1844. Scene of an industrial accident at Oldham in Yorkshire, a centre of textile manufacture: ...the falling of a newly erected mill, the property of Messrs. Radcliffe, and Co...Twenty persons were killed by this unfortunate occurrence, 12 males, and 8 females.
From the...evidence, though the facts are somewhat scattered, may be gleaned what, in all probability, is the true cause of the fall of the mill...water, it is supposed, by its percolation through the brickwork of the arch, had considerably loosened the mortar, and thus caused the arch to give way...'.

Interior of a Power-Loom factory, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Interior of a Power-Loom factory, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Interior of a Power-Loom factory, 1844. We are persuaded that the annexed engraving will be interesting to our readers, in connection with the great question of "The Factory Bill," which has just been disposed of by the Legislature.
The power-loom is now generally used in the cotton manufacture, for the weaving of plain cloth, and for the various kinds of twilled and figured goods; and Dr. Cooke Taylor considers that manual labour, at least for the coarser kinds of goods, must rapidly fall into disuse. In one respect, the power-loom has a very obvious advantage over the hand-loom...the lathe is easily adjusted to give a certain steady blow...power-loom cloth is always of a more equable and regular texture than that woven by hand'.

The Moss-Gatherers, 1872. Creator: Alfred Waud Featured Print

The Moss-Gatherers, 1872. Creator: Alfred Waud

The Moss-Gatherers, 1872. People collecting Spanish moss in the southern USA. ...Spanish moss has become important as an article of commerce, for, when plucked from the trees, from which it is easily separated, and then thoroughly "cured" and threshed of its delicate integuments of bark and leaves, it is found that through the long, thready moss is a delicate fibre as black as jet, and almost as thick as horsehair, which it strikingly resembles. For the stuffing of mattresses and cushions it is valuable, and the increasing demand for it has already opened a new field of enterprise among the denizens of the swamps'.
