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

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

Love Conquered Fear, 1840 Featured Print

Love Conquered Fear, 1840

Love Conquered Fear, 1840. Michael Armstrong, adopted by a mill owner, embracing his brother Edward who is one of the ragged factory boys working amongst the spinning mules. By Michael's foot a child crawls out from under the mule. Children were employed to keep the floor under the mules free of dust and fibres to minimise risk of fire. They often suffered horrific injuries when crushed by moving machinery. From The Life and Adventures of Michael Armstrong by Frances Trollope, who was an active campaigner against the use of child labour in British factories. (London, 1840).
