The rooms get cleaner as we move through the woolen mill processes. Here we see rows of automated looms, weaving blankets and other wool cloth. A number of people were required to manage the process, but they have been omitted since the exposure time required for the photo was so long. In detail view 2 we can see the ghost of a worker who was moving through while the photo was being taken. Detail view 1 shows a closeup of the threads coming from their spindles.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
