Textile Industry

The industries of  transportation (canals then railroads), mining, and steel helped the industrial revolution grow. But the textile industry started the revolution. I came across three items in one day that motivated this posting.

I assume the purpose of the curtain was to keep the factory's dirt off the product. Note the Jacquard Loom Cards controlling the machine.

This video was a comment on John's posting. After watching this video, You Tube offered several more on how a sock kitting machine works.

The "good old days" were not good.
