Every time I visit the Industrial Museum, I find I'm drawn to the details of the machinery in the textile mill displays - metal, wood and yarn, so intricate and precisely crafted, with beautiful patina and colour. At one time the names of the pieces and their use and care must have been etched in people's minds. The terminology starts to disappear along with the skills and machinery but to me there's something timelessly beautiful about it all.
These make for wonderful detail shots.ReplyDelete

The processes were taken to their limit. Yarn turned to cloth on those magical machines. Wonderful images of them!ReplyDelete
Those Victorians made some wonderful and beautiful to look at machinery.ReplyDelete
