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'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

The Salt statue at Bradford, c1880

The Salt statue at Bradford, c1880. Sir Titus Salt (1803-1876) discovered a method of blending alpaca wool with cotton and silk. He is best remembered as the builder of Saltaire Mill near Bradford, Yorkshire, and the surrounding model company town of Saltaire. Shops, a library and other facilities were provided for the workers, but no public houses as Salt was a teetotaller. A print from Great Industries of Great Britain, Volume I, published by Cassell Petter and Galpin, (London, Paris, New York, c1880)

Silk weaver, Bethnal Green, East London, 1893

Silk weaver, Bethnal Green, East London, 1893. A weaver at work on a hand loom in his cottage at Bethnal Green. His loom is set up by a wide window typical of weaver's cottages in many English towns, and would be near the top of the building to take advantage of maximum light. The silk industry in Spitalfields and neighbouring areas of London was founded by Huguenot refugees who fled France after Louis XIV's Revocation of the Edict of Nantes (1685). From La Science Illustree. (Paris, 1893)
