John Morgan, Cadnant Factory, Nr Menai Bridge
Invoice for 5½ yards of flannel supplied in 1852 from the woollen mill on the River Cadnant close to Menai Bridge. I suspect that the engraved image represents a rather grander affair than this mill actually was.

More information and old images can be found here. www.anglesey.info/menai-bridge-woolen-mill.htm

This is wonderful! Not only are the typefaces interesting (I especially like the one used for "Dyer, Spinner, and Weaver"), but the factory illustration with the overhead belts, pulleys, and line shafts, along with all the other details--grander than reality though they may be--is a real delight!
