9780091958282: The Mill Girls: Moving True Stories of Love and Loss from Inside Lancashire's Cotton Mills

True stories of love, laughter and loss from inside Lancashire's cotton mills.
     With tales from reluctant Audrey and mischievous Maureen to high-spirited Doris and dedicated Marjorie, The Mill Girls is an evocative story of hardship and friendship when cotton was still king. 
     Through the eyes of four northern mill girls, we are offered a fascinating glimpse into the lives of ordinary women who rallied together, nattered over the beamers and, despite the hard working conditions, weaved, packed and laughed to keep the cotton mills spinning. The Mill Girls is a moving story of an era long gone and provides a captivating insight into a lost way of life.
