All the old Northern cotton mills really were architectural delights.I wonder if the mill owners competed with each other for who could be the grandest.This photo brings back memories of the mill girls sitting in the loading bay during their break on a sunny day.

I worked here in the 60s. It was low pay, and hard work, but the people were great. I have many happy memories of that time.
