The year six children looked a perfect picture of Victorian squalor dressed in flat caps or mop caps whilst turning machines by hand. I’m sure that the children of Ruddington’s framework knitters probably resented having to spend ten hours a day of winding the bobbin up or turning the crank on the Griswold circular knitting machines. Our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. But I think that any more than ten minutes of labour might have wiped the smiles off their faces! And what wonderful smiles they are. See what you think.
