A rare image of a hand loom weaver at work, once a common sight in the area before the factories were built, the last hand loom weavers operated in Rawdon.

My Mum lived in one of the weavers cottages at the bottom of Canada Road Rawdon and up in the attic there was still evidence and wooden hooks and pegs remaining from the days when the hand loom weavers used to work in these cottages.
