An old man told me that when he was about 20 years of age, they had nine looms in the garret, and they had to work hard to make 6/- a week each. All the time they would be singing away to the click of the shuttle. Another man contrived to couple four looms together with strings, levers and pulleys, so that he could produce four pieces of cloth at one time. This man also made his own “Cello” which he played at Chapel on Sundays – so that a good many houses were both Workshops and Music shops.
