Lewis Outing emails [2006/7]:This was my grandfather's Sheep Skin Works, located on Waterside, Knaresborough. His name was James Mason. After his death in 1956, the business was run by my mother until its closure in 1965. This photograph shows one of my aunts, Pauline Mason, at work putting on a felt backing onto a rug. The backing was sewn on by fine linen thread and a 3-cornered needle which cut the skin as it went through.Off-cuts were made into dusters, polishers etc.
The rug is ready to be sold
