'MacPherson. Full Dress', c1935. Artist: Unknown Featured Print

'MacPherson. Full Dress', c1935. Artist: Unknown

'MacPherson. Full Dress', c1935. Tartan is a pattern consisting of horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours. Originally these were simply different regional checked-cloth patterns, chosen by the wearer's preference without particular reference to propriety. In the mid-nineteenth century, however, many patterns were created and artificially associated with Scottish clans, families, or institutions. Tartans originated in woven wool, but are now made in many other materials in hundreds of patterns. Scottish kilts almost always have tartan patterns. Tartan is often called plaid in North America. Illustration from a book on Scottish tartans, published c1935.

'How The Early Spinning Jenny Worked', c1934. Artist: Unknown Featured Print

'How The Early Spinning Jenny Worked', c1934. Artist: Unknown

'How The Early Spinning Jenny Worked', c1934. Illustration showing the machine for spinning cotton, invented in 1764 by James Hargreaves. The accompanying text explains the mechanism. The multi-spindle frame reduced the amount of work needed to produce cloth (previously spun by hand), with a worker able to work eight or more spools at once. This increase in output was one of the key developments in the industrialisation of weaving during the early Industrial Revolution and led to the factory system of production. From The Romance of the Nation, Volume Two, edited by Charles Ray. [The Amalgamated Press, Ltd., London, c1934]
