Weaving over 100 years

A look at the weaving industry in England at the time when our country was young . The Weavers there wanted  us here in America to trade goods , as a British colony .
I know here in Maine there was plenty of white oak for ships masts and building of wooden boats. Anyway this video takes you through the stages of weaving into the industrial revolution . A good explanation from over the pond. Watch it .
