A look at turn of the century English life.
#1
Astonising look at the industrial revolution. It's difficult for me to look at those women in loose clothing working so close to all that moving machinery. I would guess that injuries were not uncommon. The quality of those old photos indicates some high level equipment along with high level photographers. It did help to have those huge negatives that were in use at the time. I wonder what the pixel equivalent would be of a 16x20 film plate?

Their diet might not have been marvellous but they didn't live on junk food and sugary drinks.

Well this shows to me how everyday humanity changes for better in sanitary and health issues, but retrace in empathy and other values.
