This book tells stories of textile workers, recorded in Burnley, in the heart of the traditional Lancashire cotton industry in 1975. Married women weavers formed the backbone of the labour force. Life stories, gossip and and tales from the factory floor give an inside view of their lives. Biographies stretching over more than half a century indicate the speed and extent of socio-cultural and economic changes taking place during the period. It was a time when the industry was going through final transformation before its virtual demise. Changing family lives as well as working lives are depicted.
