Comment

This is the weaving department, operative Ernest Trewatha is standing next to a  Hattersley wooden shuttle loom.

He is wearing ear defenders, the level of noise could have been injurious to his hearing.

Before Health & Safety initiatives in mills and factories many work people developed hearing impairments.
