This book comprises extracts from interviews with textile workers, covering a wide range of jobs within the industry and spanning a working life from bfore the Second World War to the demise of many of the massive mills which still dominate the Huddersfield landscape. Starting work straight from school, many had ambitions in other shperes but poverty sent them into the mills instead. There they found noise, dirt, long hours and poor pay, but also a comradeship that lasted their working life and beyond.
