Dinner break in Eckersley's Weaving Shed early 50's
Photo: Freda

My Mother, Bessie Monks on left. 2nd from right Marjorie? Duckworth. Does anyone know the others? The weavers each looked after 20 looms and, they had a battery filler whose job it was to make sure none of the looms ran out of weft. At age 15 I was my mother's battery filler - so definitely no slacking on the job.
