Mill wall, East London ~ The association with Cockney and the East End in the public imagination may be due to many people assuming that Bow Bells are to be found in the district of Bow, rather than the lesser known St Mary-le-Bow church. Thus while all East Enders are Cockneys, not all Cockneys are East Enders.

Manchester to revive Britain's textile trade with reborn Cottonopolis

Volunteers needed to excavate Bolton’s industrial past - Manchester Gazette. And this is why we were always black when we went back for a visit, so much soot everywhere.

Stembridge Tower Mill in High Ham, Somerset, England, is the last remaining thatched windmill in England. The stone tower mill was built in 1822 with four floors & the thatched "cap". In 1894 a steam engine was installed & after the mill was damaged in a storm in 1897 or 1898 this became the sole source of power. Commercial use ended in 1910. The mill is now owned by The National Trust and underwent a £100,000 restoration in 2009 & was re-opened later in the year.

September 15, 1845

September 15, 1845: Earlier in the year, 5,000 women cotton mill workers in and around Pittsburgh go on strike for a 10-hour day and an end to child labor. Months into the strike, hundreds marched on the Blackstock Mill, one of the largest in the area. The women broke down the factory's gates and forcibly expelled the scabs, while the men who accompanied them kept the police at bay.
