Description
"Weaving cloth, India". Exterior view of men working on home made looms and weaving long strips of cloth. The cloth extends down the side of an earth bank and onlookers stand behind the weavers. Cloth was often bought by the missions to provide cheap clothes for the underprivileged and provide work for industrial/ training schools. Images of traditional industries were also collected to illustrate pamphlets and lectures, given back in Britain, which helped to raise funds. ❧ Thomas Hunter (1827-1857) was the first Church of Scotland missionary to the Punjab, he was murdered with his family during the Indian Mutiny, 1857, and had only arrived in Sialkot that year. His successors, John Taylor (1837-1868) and Robert Paterson, would not arrive until 1860.
