This photograph was staged during an arranged visit to a mill. It was impossible for Humphrey Spender to be a secret observer in work places and homes. It is likely that this mill belongs to the Barlow family who helped to fund the Mass Observation study in Bolton. If you can help us to identify this mill then please leave a comment below.
