Antique Industrial Textile Relics – every one more than 100 years old. In the United Kingdom & the United States, textile mills are closing down, or did so 50 years ago. The land is being sold for development and the bobbins left within the factories are burnt in huge bonfires, or dug into the ground. It’s heart breaking. This is your opportunity to save a little piece of history.
