Bradford Industrial Museum

     It was one of those nasty winter days yesterday, rain, sleet, snow, and strong winds, so I spent an hour at the Bradford Industrial Museum.  The upper floor of the museum contains a large selection of textile machines, from the earliest weaving looms to machines probably built in the 1960's, many of them manufactured here in West Yorkshire. These older machines were really built to last and were exported to countries all over the world and I wouldn't be surprised if there were still a few of them running in some distant region.  The machine in the picture was built by Smith & Sons, Royd Works, Keighley..
