Etching of a mill

DSC_0032

In this etching is what a cotton mill would have looked like inside. On the left you have your spinner he was the one in charge of keeping the cotton spinners working. He was the only one that would have been paid by the mill. The workers on the right would have been family members of the spinner and would have been paid by them.
