Vintage / Antique machineery and gears with texture overlay.
This is part of an old loom from Parr, Curtis and Medley in Manchester, 1850.
A loom is a device used to weave cloth. The basic purpose of any loom is to hold the warp threads under tension to facilitate the interweaving of the weft threads. The precise shape of the loom and its mechanics may vary, but the basic function is the same.
The machine was in use until 1927, and it was woven 600,000 meter cotton fabric on it.
