Engineering and Heavy Industry

Textiles. F. W. Moody. Sgraffito panel. Victoria & Albert Museum, South Kensington. The panel includes both women, who spun wool into yarn long before (and well into) the industrial revolution, a weaver with a completed role of fabric, and a young man struggling with a bale of cotton. The man wearing a frock coat in front of him is probably a factory owner or inventor of modern textile technology. Photograph by George P. Landow. Click on image to enlarge it.
