In the Queen Street textile weaving mill, Burnley, Lancashire, we hear the automatic loom start up and run, weaving cotton toweling.
Thanks This is great...... its for a local history project with school children getting them to research child labour in mills.
Don't know how old this machine was - it's in a museum though - I might be able to find out. Machines for weaving towelling have certainly been around for a long time... (They may well have a different sound from a 'flat-weave' loom of similar date - does that matter...?)
Is this a modern Cotton Mill Machine or would this be the sound of a Machine used in say the 1940s I'm struggling to find a sound of a period Cotton mill machine please can anyone help?!
