Postcards from Readers: Textile history in Lancashire

The photographer: Ric Burwell of Carmichael

Behind the lens: The textile mills in northern England have all but disappeared. The Queen Street Mill Textile Museum in Burnley, Lancashire, is a glimpse of what this industry looked like. It is especially intriguing to me because my grandparents both worked in mills like this one before coming to the States in the 1920s.
