James Mason, Sheep Skin Rug Manufacturer, Bridge Mills, Waterside, Knaresborough

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, Hazel Mason, finishing a rug.
The skin is being made into a crescent-shaped rug. The curved template can be seen on the far side of the table.
Above are the multicoloured wool dusters ready for sale. One hundred of these could be made in a day. They were made from off-cuts.
